Plain stockinette knitting blooms into large and lovely petals between impressive swathes of multi-directional openwork mesh. Yarn overs and simple decreases create an easy, mesmerizing lace design that is sure to make new knitters catch the lace bug and results in a shawl that drapes beautifully.

Lotus Flowers is a modified heart-shaped shawl knit flat from the center top down.

Tip from maker knittothebone:
“I made stitch markers from regular yarn instead of the typical ring markers. The YOs stay on the appropriate side of the markers. It’s made a huge difference and I’m able to glide thru the rows so much more quickly and accurately.”
