Cottage Garden Shawl

A couple of months ago, I designed this shawl for a friend & then some knitters requested that I write the pattern. I have never written a shawl pattern before although I did wrote a pattern for my Berry Triangle but there were no charts involved.

So I tried & it took me a while to get things right but I managed to write up the pattern & it's now for sale in ravelry. It's a good triangle shawl for a beginner and the pattern allows the flexiblity of increasing or decreasing the size of the shawl.

This is my 2nd test knit from the original & I have made it smaller & eliminated the leaves portion of the lace. To break the monotony of knitting stocking stitch, I did a k2tog, yo every few rows.


There are also a few more versions from my test knitters & they are all gorgeous. Thank you Gosia & Lisa for your efforts.

I also did a 2nd test knit for my Berry Triangle with a different yarn & it looks just as good.....

I am currently working on another shawl design & here's a peek at it.....


I am now working out the details with the 2nd shawl, then write out the pattern & have it test knitted, so this will take a while .....

I saw your Berry Triangles on The Ravelry: lovely, and your newest shawls look gorgeous. I love the lacy border on the last one!! Very clever!!
