Mystic Midsummer Wreath

Of all the nights during the year, Midsummer’s Eve is the most magical and mystical. During that night, fairies dance and anything can happen. In Sweden, young girls pick seven different kinds of flowers in the hopes that they will dream of their true love.
People raise midsummer poles and make midsummer wreaths and celebrate throughout the night, during which the sun doesn’t set.
The shawl is knit from the bottom up. The pattern is charted, with lace patterning on every other row.
