Introducing a new improved version of the Orchid Thief pattern, self published by Ysolda. It features clearer charts and full written directions for fun, frustration free knitting.
Three petals bloom from the centre top edge, their points organically growing into the three spines of yarn over increases. This unusual increase pattern creates the perfect shape for staying in place around your shoulders. The petals along the edge are grouped into threes, echoing the centre and forming deep scallops.
