Original, Caramel, Loam
Bloom Your Heart Out is an asymmetrical shawl worked sideways from tip with irregular side increases along its left edge. Shawl features three pattern panels with softly transitioning scalloped lace and light textures flowing continuously throughout the whole body. It is not an overly complex pattern, but requires steady attention and concentration due to the fluctuating stitch counts throughout the rows and the irregular side increases.
Wingspan (length along the longest edge): 86.75” (220 cm)
I-cord edge: 78” (198 cm)
Lace edge (bind-off edge): 46” (117 cm)
In the words of the designer…
“I really wanted to make something that celebrates a person for who they are without the need of holding anything back – to let the heart bloom exactly the way it wants to bloom, the way it feels itself the most. Loud, vivid and with the passion, letting yourself be seen and letting yourself be fully immersed in the beauty of your own being – with scars and tears and falls, but also with the heart that holds it all together and grows and heals and blooms. A celebration of oneself – proud, beautiful and unapologetic. Embrace who you are, let your heart accept your own beauty and let yourself bloom. Life really doesn’t have much meaning if we are not who we really are.”
This shawl was knit with La Bien Aimée Cashmerino, a sumptuous blend of merino wool and cashmere, with a touch of nylon for added durability. Each skein of Cashmerino is a generous 473 yards (433 meters), making it perfect for those larger projects. This yarn can be used for any fingering or light fingering weight pattern, and is especially suited to shawls and sweaters.
