Orchard Blossoms Shawl

I live in apple country, so I take a drive in the countryside every spring to see the trees in blossom. Find the right spot and you have blossoms in the foreground, with the escarpment sloping down to the blue of Georgian Bay in the background—beautiful! This generously sized shawl features eyelet motifs that resemble round, open blossoms with six petals in the central section, tighter buds in the smaller side panels, and a mesh border that represents the spent petals that fall to the ground after fertilization occurs and fruit begins to form.
