Clary Sage is my most favourite garden herb. In lore, it is a woman’s plant, associated with the moon and used in love and protection charms. This shawl is inspired from looking at the Clary Sage flowers in my garden fade from an exquisite cream to light purple to a dark purple rimmed border. This crescent shaped shawl is worked top down with a classic Victorian lace edge border knitted on. It’s fun to wear either as a shawl draped over the shoulders or as a scarf around the neck. It is also fun to knit with a bit of stripes, a bit of lace and a bit of texture. The 3 color combinations make for limitless possibilities. Choose muted tones for an elegant look or bright contrasting colors for a bold statement.
