Botanica Medallion Progresses

Over July 4th weekend, I bought some more Tahki Cotton Classic at Purl By the Sea for the Botanica Medallion Vest from Vogue International. I was concerned that I wouldn’t have sufficient cotton for the edging. In addition, I bought a skien of darker blue-green in case I decide to switch to a different lace pattern for the medallion.

I started the center medallion. After knitting several other doily patterns, this one is relatively easy. Unlike doilies which have a lot of open work lace, this medallion is knit fairly tightly since it makes a flower. The flower is reminiscent of the blue starfish (yes you read that correctly) that we saw in the Cook Islands on our honeymoon. 

Unlike other doilies that I’ve knit, the medallion has created a bump in the middle. I am concerned that it will not block out.
