Today I am excited because I just published Cerulean Mist, which I talked about a couple of weeks ago here. My test knitter gave me some feedback and I published it on Ravelry yesterday! I feel really good about this one; I think it’s well written and easy to follow. Something I hear a lot in the shop is frustration about not being able to understand directions within patterns. “It’s not written clearly” or “why do I have to flip back and forth to follow the chart and written instructions – couldn’t they have combined it?” So I took it upon myself to simplify all the language used and create a pattern that would be easy to follow for a beginner shawl knitter.
This shawl can be worn as a scarf with the point in the center front, or as a shawl around your shoulders! I used a light color as my MC but my test knitter used a dark one! I think it would also be cool to play around with your fingering weight stash yarn to make each eyelet section a different color.
The two photos below are of my test knitter’s sample! Doesn’t the darker version look great too?
