Visions of hyacinth rows spanning a formal garden was the inspiration for this Garden of Sincerity shawl. Vivid fuchsia to purple to intense royal blue gradient create this floral effect as fuchsia-colored glass cube beads highlight each row. Soft and silky to the touch, this Tencel yarn hugs you with coolness, making it wonderful to wear in Spring and Summer.
Notes on project:
This Lily Go pattern was less complicated than I thought it would be after the huge amount of cast on stitches. Once I finished the first repeat, it was smooth sailing after that. I modified it slightly to have an eyelet edge between the sections. I thought it would help keep the rows stable when blocked.
And what can I say about Vivid Fiber Arts yarn that hasn’t already been said. This colorway is absolutely gorgeous. It wasn’t my first choice in colors, but once I started knitting it up in this Garden of Sincerity shawl, it soon became a favorite. Love how it turned out. I will definitely be making this shawl again.
