Inflorescence

An inflorescence, according to Merriam-Webster, is a cluster of flowers on one or a series of branches, which together make a large showy blossom. Whether singly or in groups, I’ve always loved flowers. There’s something especially magical about a cluster, an inflorescence, on the plant. Some of my favorite flowers bloom in clusters: lilac, hyacinth, hydrangea, snowball, wisteria, foxglove, lantana (especially the purple ones)... I could go on. And on.

Both patterns, Cluster and Flourette, are knit with the same Estonian cluster stitch. The thickness of the yarn is what changes, what gives both designs their own special something.
