When Jesus was born, also shepherds wanted to visit the newborn baby. They were not rich people, but nevertheless they had gifts with them, nothing luxurious and expensive, just what they could give, some wool from their sheep, some milk, maybe some cheese and bread, things like these. A little boy very carefully carried a crock with milk for the baby but suddenly he stumbled and the pottery felt down and broke. The boy weeped bitterly. But there, where his tears touched the ground a beautiful flower grew up and the boy picked it up and after all he could come to the crib with a present.
This Christmas rose is regarded as a symbol of hope until today, like Christ is the hope for all mankind.
Our this year's Christmas shawl should remember the flower of hope. We will knit a blossom as a "Pi-shawlette" with simple fairisle patterns. Again dibadu's Twisted Fifties will be used, as an 8 skein gradient together with two skeins of a contrast color. As always they will be a new gradient edition especially for this shawl. The next shopupdate with the yarn will be on November 15th. The shawl will become rather big and who wants to take part will need some endurance for sure, but then you can stylishly warm up yourself with our beautiful Chrismas flower.
As always, the parts of the pattern will be ready for download on fridays before the sundays in advent: 29.11., 6.12., 13.12. and 20.12.
The pattern will be free until 6.1.2020.
