My Japanese flower shawl

I'm starting my new blog year right away with this Japanese flower shawl, which I have been crocheting during the holidays - the yarn is Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn, which I've been hiding in my stash in search for the very right pattern to use it for ... and as this happens to be a Japanese pattern as well, I thought it would be most suitable indeed for this project.

I first saw this gorgeous shawl at Lucy's great crochet blog 'Attic 24' - and when you read this posting of hers, I guess you will be just as thrilled as I was when reading about it ... When looking at her clear pictures, you might even feel able to pick up your hook and start crocheting right away!

(German summary: Diesen herrlichen japanischen Blumenschal habe ich jetzt während der Feiertage gehäkelt, die Idee fand ich bei Lucy, dort gibt es auch mehr Bilder und Hinweise zum Muster!)
