Finished Object Friday: Woodland Shawl
Pattern: Woodland Shawl by Nikol Lohr
Source: free pattern published in The Thrifty Knitter
Materials: 3 skeins of Rowan Pure Wool 4ply, and US 5 needles
Modifications: I actually followed the directions on this one! (But I did go down in needle size.)
You all have already been hearing about my black walnut dyeing adventures in my last two posts. Now I'm happy to be done with a project using my hand-dyed yarn. I highly recommend this pattern. It is one of those with enough stitch detail to hold your interest, but still easy enough to knit while watching a movie (or sitting at a red light)!
As a bonus, I think it works as a scarf too, and the "wrong" side looks good as well:
I love those leaves, now I just need to make a hat to match!
