Primula Denticulata

This primula is my very favourite flower in spring, with its varying colours of purple and blue/purple, and some in pure white.  I love to visit them on a stroll through the garden in spring, as the tree leaves are budding, and the garden awakening.

The shawl is worked in one piece, starting at the back neck with a short cast on.  It consists of 3 triangles.  The body is worked in the main colour, MC and the border in a contrasting colour, CC. The main colour can be worked in repeats until almost all of the yarn is used up.  The transition rows are worked with both colours and then the lacey border is worked in the contrasting colour, with optional beads.  The size can be easily adjusted by working additional (or fewer) repeats of either or both colours.

I used 2 complementary colours of my own merino silk handspun yarn for this one, with the additional of size 6 AB seed beads in the lacey border.
