Design in the works: River Shannon

Prototype - River Shannon Shawlette - Crescent Moon Collective
Prototype - River Shannon Shawlette

This is the prototype of a one skein shawlette I am working on. There are a few changes I want to make in the next draft, but overall I am excited about how it turned out. The most difficult part has been writing up the pattern. It will need to be tested many times!

This is what is left if the skein.  I could have made the middle section a bit longer!

After it's dry and off the blocking mats I can see if it is a good shawl shape.  The next one will be knit in a solid or maybe a tonal colour for comparison.

Send me a message if you want to be a pattern tester. You will need 1 skein off fingering weight (sock) yarn and 4.5mm needles.

More to come on this later.
