Valerian Shawl pattern - by Kristin Spurkland
The red valerian (a.k.a. Jupiter’s Beard, or Centranthus Ruber) is a popular garden plant that flowers profusely in early summer. Although each jaunty reddish blossom is tiny, they bloom in showy clusters that combine to impressive effect, delighting bees and butterflies. Like its namesake, the Valerian Shawlette has a small pattern repeated to great effect. It may not attract butterflies… but is very likely to attract knitters.
