IMG_4461You know those days when it’s drizzly and miserable, and then all of a sudden the clouds part and the light streams down and everything glows? That is Turadh and that is what the stripes shining through the white shawl say to me. I’ve been on quite a jounery with this shawl – I’ve actually designed it twice. The first version didn’t come out as I wanted it to so I went right back to the start, reworked it all, and now I’m completely in love with the shawl!

IMG_4433I got the mini skeins for my pattern as a set from Old Maiden Aunt and I love how they work together. My favourite is  the teal green (called Jaded) so I put it in the last spot where I’d use more of it! It’s been so much fun seeing my testers choices. My favourites are the one made with gradient mini skeins, and the one with a variegated main colour and mini skeins that pick up the main colours from the variegation.

IMG_4468The possibilities are endless with this pattern – instead of using 6 colours you could use two, three or four. Instead of mini skeins, you can always use left overs and have a memory shawl.

You can find the pattern on Ravelry and LoveKnitting (it’s not up yet, but you can find it here when it is!) and there’s 20% off automatically on Ravelry until midnight (UK time) on the 17th July.

If you want to find out what I’m up to between blog posts you can keep an eye on what I’m up to on Instagram, or come and chat with me in my Ravelry group – I’d love to hear about what you’re knitting! If you’d like an exclusive 40% discount on future releases sign up to my newsletter – I only send out emails when I release a new pattern or am having a sale, so generally you’ll only hear from me once a month.
