My 2nd Scalloped Shawl


I have received so many compliments and Likes on my first Scalloped Shawl that I knew I had to do another at some point! This time it was a request from my Mom that lead me back to this fantastic pattern. She wanted a black shawl with gold accents that she could wear with nice outfits during the cool months. I spent the better part of 2-3 months causally looking around this past summer for yarn that would work well for this project.

I am happy to announce another new and FREE pattern called Cloudy Skies. I was again inspired by yarn I got from Western Sky Knits, a neat combo of blues and greys in DK weight. You can read all about this mashup on the pattern page HERE.

This time I have included a Symbol Chart along with photos. This pattern is great for beginners and experiments alike as it is easily customizable to any size, width and finishing desired!

Sweet Lorraine Lace Scarf

At first I thought that this pattern wouldn’t work well with a variated yarn, but after the first few rows I really liked how it looked. Reminds me of a fresh fruit cup with blackberries, melon, strawberries and blueberries, with a sprig of mint on the side. When you download the pattern, it shows in both written and diagram form, which is very helpful, once you get familiar with the written pattern, the diagram is great for reference. It also works up quite fast so I am excited to finish this one soon and post up some completed photos!
