I love the way that some Blossoms start with a really intense color and fade into a neutral. I wanted to accent this dramatic shift by working the lace border at the cast-on edge with the bright orchid color and fading as the lace becomes simple columns. Bobbles accent each lace point and a picot cast-off echoes that bit of flair.
