Maybe you remember the shawl I made for mom’s birthday? You can find it here, if you want to have a looksee.
As it happens, my little sister’s birthday is just a couple of weeks before my mom’s, and even though we usually don’t make a huge deal out of it, it feels wrong to send my mother something and not my sister.
So I embarked on designing a shawl for her, too …
I used my now favorite yarn again, Blacker’s Pure Fine Shetland, and decided on a dark gray as base with some natural/off-white stripes.
Since the shawl is still a WIP, I can’t show you too much of it, but I can tell you this much:
- it features a garter stitch body
- of course there are eyelets
- it will have ruffles
The latter is driving me slowly insane at the moment, as the edge rows are now (guestimated, I can’t be arsed to actually count the stitches … ) well beyond 600 stitches.
Stay tuned, as I intend to publish this pattern at some point, too.
