Trientalis: trî-en-TÂ-lis; A small genus of flowers that includes Starflowers.
Inspired by Starflowers and named for them, this feminine design is created by combining floral lace balanced by garter stitch.
A crescent shaped shawlette that is worked from the bottom up, its lacy floral tone is accentuated by a flower chain edging that flows gracefully into the Starflower lace. Classic garter stitch completes the shawlette to give it structure and warmth. The crescent shape is created through easy garter stitch short rows.
The pattern is provided with written instructions and charts for the lace.
