A rather large sized shawl, for extra warmth in the coming winter.

Wikipedia:
A singel* is by origin a water-filled moat which surrounds a city for defense purposes. When the city expands, the singel is incorporated in the city’s structure and cannot be distinguished any more from a gracht, although the name ‘singel’ is usually maintained. As such, singels often encircle (older) parts of the city. But in other cases regular grachten were dug in circles as well, like the famous grachtengordel (canal-belt) of Amsterdam.*

On the “Singel” in Amsterdam, you can buy flowers. Across the Netherlands, plenty of Singels are beautiful streets with plenty of flowers.

Anyway, this design is built with the first part in purl background and twisted stitches representing “Water”.
The second part is worked on the topside of the first part and in a different colour, representing “Flowers”.
Once you bind off all stitches, knitting is done.

The water side in the lighter colour (Silver Wave) will need a bit more yarn (100gr) than the flower side (Cove) (90gr).
