Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Garden Bed Shawl Kit - Scarf and Shawls
Taken from: Renegade Knitwear "Garden Bed" - In celebration of Mother's Day 2017, Chris of Renegade Knitwear collaborated with Jimmy Beans to design a shawl using two of their Lorna's Laces Limited Edition colors for the months of April and May, with the theme being "April Showers bring May Flowers". GARDEN BED uses two skeins of sock yarn in an uncommon construction. One color is knit in a repeating lace motif with picots, and the second color is picked up along the edge of the panel, decreasing in easy garter stitch to create a triangle shape, more than suitable for the wonderful mother figure in your life.

Finished Measurements: 77" in wingspan. 29" from top of shawl to deepest point, after blocking.
