New Pattern | The SOS Shawl

UPDATE | Pattern is now live on Ravelry. You can get it HERE and remember its FREE when you sign up to my newsletter until Midnight GMT on Tuesday 12th September 2017.

HELLO MAKERS | I’m back. I took a little vacation to recharge and of course I did a lot of knitting during that break. Its September now and here in the Northern Hemisphere its officially Autumn – so its getting colder and that means knitting season has finally arrived!

The leaves are already dropping (I love Autumn 🍂 🍃 🍂 🍃 ) and people have started to stress about their Christmas knitting plans (eek!). My local Tesco store was actually putting away the back to school essentials and bringing out the Christmas sweets and chocolates this evening! (WHY!!!!!!)

Now is definitely the time to take a little moment for you. After all you’ve worked hard this year, the kids are back to school and the dark nights are just round the corner.  So why not make September a time for some selfish knitting for yourself.  I have the perfect new shawl design for you to…

THE SOS SHAWL | Designed with mini skeins or leftovers in mind this shawl is a traditional shetland hap construction with a modern simple border of garter and stocking stitch “Stripes On Stripes”.

Play with colour and relax as you take a break from your knitting schedule to create some Simple | Stylish | Stitches

WHAT DO YOU NEED | One skein main colour of fingering weight yarn (400 metres) and seven small 20 gram minis for contrasting colours OR you can go wild and blend your own colour combinations from your leftover stash.

“…definitely a shawl that you will want to knit again and again.”

HOW DO I FIND IT | I’m releasing the pattern on Ravelry later this week and the shawl will be FREE for 24-hours after it goes live to all my newsletter subscribers who are Ravelry members.
