It's Coming!

Settler Shawl

If you're a stalker of Raverly boards or a regular on Instagram you may have already had a sneaky peek at my new shawl design over the last 24 hours.

Settler Shawl is so close to being finished. The pattern has been written and professionally tech edited and right now it's being tested by a bunch of willing knitters. With a bit of luck, it'll be ready to buy in a few weeks time!

I'm super pleased with how it's turned out and I've been loving wearing it already .... This is how I've described it on the pattern:

A modern twist on traditional lace knitting, Settler is a stylish, airy, crescent-shaped shawl using just one skein of fingering yarn. Wrap Settler around your neck as a snugly scarf or gracefully drape it across your shoulders. The garter stitch body makes for a relaxing knit, perfect for handbag knitting and chatting with friends. The funky criss-crossed border is fun to knit and simple to master. Ideal for the adventurous beginner.

It's been a while since I released my first pattern Skeppe Hat and I'm feeling a mixture of jitters and excitement as I get ready to send another pattern out into the world. I wonder if it'll always be like that?

  7. I might even have to frog (for about the 8th time) my Bradbury for this - or maybe I will have enough yarn left to indulge myself in 2 shawls in the same colour :-)
