She wrapped her shawl a bit tighter around her shoulders as the cool breeze moved some loose wisps of hair across her face. There was the scent of apple blossoms and lilacs in the air. While mornings were still quite cool, the warm weather was finally on its way.
The Posey Shawl is a two-color triangular shawl worked from top-down. The main body of the shawl is sprinkled with little posies that are so fun to knit. The border is a 3 by 3 rib, worked in a contrast color that has a scattering of posies worked in the main color. Don’t let the border scare you – intarsia skills are not necessary to work these dainty posies!
The contrast color border with the posey flowers worked in the main color is the focal point of this shawl - and my favorite part to work. Using the two different color yarns does not require any special skills or wrapping of yarn - if you can knit a bobble, you can knit these flowers.
