Peonies planted at the outermost perimeter of a garden will frame it in a glorious floral display. The Peony Perimeter shawl’s lacy border of grand blooms will indulge you and impress others all year long.
Peony Perimeter is a crescent-shaped shawl. It requires 400-700 meters of fingering weight yarn. Use needle size that gives you a nice lacy effect. The shawl can be enlarged by adding additional repeats. The pattern is charted, wrong side rows are a combination of knits and purls.
