In Bloom

Do you also have that yarn that has been sitting on your shelf for ages, waiting for the perfect project to come along to make it shine? I didn’t find it for that wonderfully soft and yummy yarn that I bought on our Canada trip last summer. I know that last summer technically doesn’t qualify as “waiting for ages”, but the yarn kept calling out to me. (I’m SURE you know what I’m talking about. Right?? Please, say you do!) So I had to make up my own favourite shawl pattern. Well. Since I usually stick to toys and small knits, I was never a big friend of knitting shawls (my patience is too limited to follow a whole lace pattern without making loads of changes and then giving up altogether), so I had to make up a pattern that is really quick to knit but not boring, and which has that certain something, too. Weeks later, after hours of ribbing and trying again, I’m now finally very satisfied with the results 🙂

And after giving my test knitters some extra gray hair, the pattern is now finally ready!

Thank you very much blue-lama, Binle, sylie, Trametes1971, kathinka14 and franzi55 for test knitting and Suzieqtee for proof reading! And to my beautiful models Vivika and Jonathan!

So I give you my very first shawl pattern: *drum roll*

There are no advanced techniques to master for this one. The only things this pattern requires are knits, purls, yarn overs and simple decreases (k2tog). Do you like the result?

        Mal sehen, ob ich auch Kauni nehme oder lieber mehrfarbig mit Baumwoll-Sockenwolle stricke ☺
