Pressed Flowers Shawl

Pattern: Pressed Flowers by Amy Christoffers

Yarn: Phoebe by Quince and Co. and Farm Twist by Madelinetosh

This pattern is so sweet and will be just the thing to remind you in the middle of a pandemic winter that spring, summer and summer flowers will come again. This quotation from the book Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck was written in the pattern description and it captures the beauty of pressed flowers, summer, winter and all the time in between.

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

This lovely sample was knit by Lisa Case. The yarn combination was (obviously) chosen by Karen.

Here are some more combinations we think would be beautiful! The pattern uses two contrasting colors of DK weight yarn.
