New Pattern / New Class

This new design is the pattern featured in the upcoming "My Second Shawl" class at Village Wools in October.  Be sure to check my "Classes" page for details.

Class will cover working two charts simultaneously - which sounds much more complex than it is.  By working two charts at once, you achieve the center panel of lace seen in the photo at right.

This shawl was worked in 470 yards of  Manos del Uruguay's Fino (colorway: Pocketwatch) on a 60" US Size 8 circular needle (working back and forth).

The pattern is very flexible, allowing the knitter to up-or-downsize the shawl by simply working more or fewer repeats of the body chart.

This shawl is currently on display at Village Wools.  Drop by to see it in person and to register for this class.

Today only, in memory of the unsung heroes of 9/11, I'm offering a FREE copy of Salty Dog Men's Hat.
Please feel free to pass this on, but I ask that you link back to this post so others can see this amazing video.
Thank you.
