Lyra In Bloom pays homage to Herbert Neibling’s Lyra. It begins with a center medallion and the side wings bloom out from that medallion. The edging continues the blooming along the edges of the wings and center medallion. Each part does its work in the full blooming of this shawl.

This shawl consists of four sections—the center medallion, two triangular side wings, and the edging. The medallion is worked first, followed by the right side wing. Once these two parts are complete, the left side wing is worked. The edging is then worked off of all three of the previous parts. A solid yarn color is recommended to prevent unwanted pooling.
