Lavender loves purple; she loves the light, lacey purple of her namesake but also the wild, vibrant purple of psychedelic rock and the deep, black purple of approaching midnight. At first blush she might look sweet and delicate, but Lavender hides a wild side. Both traditional and innovative, Lavender brings forth new ideas from an old soul.
Wild Lavender is a shawl with optional buttons/buttonholes that can be fastened to create a poncho or a cowl. This pattern can be easily sized by adding additional repeats of the center section for a longer shawl- although please note that this will increased yardage requirements.
