This top down shawl is named after the wild waterlilies, though you may only see a few lilypads and flowers on the surface, the plant underneath the water is much larger with leaves on long underwater stems tangling like vines and buds growing upwards.
Delicate lace patterns intersect and converge, depicting the various parts of the lovely water lily: buds, flowers, stems and lilypads.


When beaver dams invite to slow,
I spread out wide and deep I grow.
Lingering here I see a fawn,
a silent heron, looking on.

Wild roses dot the banks I see,
showering petals onto me,
and waterlily pink in bloom,
I see in ponds I pass in June!
