The promise of Spring with buds about to burst into flower inspired this design. Named for Beautiful Flower in Old Greek, Calanthia is a wide and shallow crescent shaped shawl.
Worked from the top down, the easily memorised lace - evocative of budding flowers - gently flows into the edging, which features highlights of the little flower bud lace pattern. Light and airy, it is perfect to throw over the shoulders on a cool morning.
The pattern is provided with written instructions and charts for the lace.
