Lilli Pilli is a beautiful Australian plant whose deep magenta berries inspired the colors of this shawl.
Worked on the bias, in three fun colors; two striped together contrasted with a third for the lace sections. Lilli Pilli is fun to knit, and works up big and cozy. There are so many ways to use color in this project ? let your stash out to play!

The pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace section.
