Flower Basket

is finished :o))) and a respectable 72" across the top and 32" down the spine





Knit from my own handspun, which was spun from South African Fine in colour way 'Joshua Tree' dyed by Spunky Eclectic. The shawl was knit using 3.75mm needles (yarnw eight was 6m/g) and using Evelyn Clarks pattern 'Flower Basket'. This has 14 repeats of the main pattern before doing the 10 row edging...

Started last Tuesday (16th) and finished yesterday (21st) including blocking and arrived safely in Yorkshire today for my friend Mike to give to his mum....

Will do this pattern again at a future date....

Also completed for a Christmas present 'Lime Fire' a 3ply yarn.


Fibre from Spunky Eclectic and is Superwash Merino.
336m / 110g

I don't usually like pink lace, but your Flower Basket is really lovelt! Your handspun is cheerful, too!
