FO: Bougainvillea shawl-scarf


Bougainvillea is a shawl-and-scarf-mashup, knit in one piece, with a leaf (bract) edge.



Both ends narrow to one leaf, and, because of short rows on the edging, the leaves ruffle and tend to wind around each other.

Pattern, with more pictures, coming soon!

That is indeed very lovely. I also like the back view. I really should try knitting one of these small shawl/scarf type of thingies. I'm just afraid I'll never wear them so it end up a wasted effort.
