This shawl is made up from individual flower motifs which are joined together as you go.  It is from a Japanese pattern book.  I used Drops Delight which is a lovely 4ply yarn that comes in the most beautiful colours and is also really cheap. Japanese pattern books use just charts so it was fairly easy to work out.

It looks beautiful. The colours are so pretty.
As a frustrated and very poor crocheter I can appreciate the time and effort that goes into making something like this.
I know you will get many compliments when you wear it out.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This is so beautiful! I love the light and complex look and the slow color change makes it look stylish.
