ALL ABOUT THIS FANTASTIC PALETTE SHAWL
It’s an easy 2-row repeat. Yes, it’s true. Simple to memorize and great for chatting and knitting at the same time.
It’s totally adjustable. Cast on more stitches for a blanket. Cast on fewer stitches for a scarf. Make it longer. Shorter. Whatever. I give you my cast on recommendations but feel free to experiment once you know the stitch pattern.
You don’t have to worry about running out of yarn. You’ll start to notice this trend in a lot of my patterns. Since we dye small batches of many limited edition colors you want to be able to just stop knitting if you run out of yarn, rather than need several more yards to complete it. So this pattern fits the bill.
Makes for a great travel or movies cover up. Ever freeze to death in the movies? I do every time. This’ll turn your frozen movie time into a cozy, cuddly, warm and shareable adventure. Take on the plane with you or in the car to drape up over your body when trying to nap during a trip. You can thank me later.
A perfect writing/reading wrap. Curl up with your journal or favorite novel and snuggle with your Palette shawl. Don’t forget some tea!
It’s a parallelogram! That right there makes it super cool.
Due to its size, it’s a cross between a blanket and a shawl. A shanket? A blawl?
Great for use with solid colorways but simple enough for variegated yarn or gradients. Have your way with the pattern. It can take it.
It uses size US 8 (5.0mm) circular needles (or long straights) and is great for beginners to advanced-level knitters! You’ll need to know how to knit, purl, k2tog (knit two together) and yo (yarn over).
Enjoy wearing or giving your Palette Shawl. Comfort and coziness await you.
You may sell the items you make using my patterns. I just ask that you link back to my shop. Thanks!
