More Knits Ode To Spring Shawl Pattern Review

The day has arrived! Abby of the More Knits Podcast has released her latest design: the Ode to Spring shawl. This triangular shawl is made up of alternating sections of 2-color brioche and garter stitch. It is mindless and perfect for a cozy evening snuggled up to watch your favorite movie or tv show. There is enough changes to prevent boredom, but it isn't so complicated that you must be undistracted in order to work on it. I am so glad I was able to be a test knitter!

Miel Shawl – Claire Walls: A Pattern Review

The Miel shawl by Claire Walls is finally live!! 🎉🎉🎉

 Now I'm normally not a fan of triangular shawls, but the benefit of this particular shawl is that it is quite large.  The other triangle shawls I have knit in the past were smaller and didn't cover my arms when I wore them around my shoulders. Miel completely covers my arms and then some! It is a warm, cozy, half blanket shawl and I love it.

Billowing Shawl – The Blue Mouse: Pattern Review

I have been on such a shawl knitting kick recently! That is partly due to all the test knits I’ve been working on over the past month or so, but I’ve also just been enjoying working on projects bigger and more complex than socks. I actually have three more shawls that I’ll be blogging about when the patterns are released. (If you want a peek at them, they were featured on my most recent podcast episode.)

A Bluejay Spindrift – Helen Stewart Spindrift Shawl Pattern Review

Hello my dears,

It has been a couple of months since I finished this shawl. Actually, it is my first finished project of 2018 considering I cast it off on January 1st. This shawl is a modified version of the Spindrift Shawl designed by the wonderful Helen Stewart. I knit it out of Emmy Couture Yarns in the Bluejay colorway; hence, why I fondly refer to it as my Bluejay Spindrift!
