Hello! Is it a throw-back when it's from last month? LOL! I am sorry for being again so quiet here, March has been a busy month and I have dropped the ball on the blog. But let's get back to knitting patterns, shall we? Or should I say 'shawl' we?
Today's featured pattern is the Olas Shawl, it's a fingering weight half-pi shawl, worked flat from the top down. The idea was to play and change the stitch pattern in several section, making it a super relaxing and fun project to have on the needles.
Originally designed using three contrast colors, the pattern is highly adaptable to many more, making it a perfect candidate for some stash diving or to use up the bits of some left-over yarn. Go pay your stash a visit, and select as many colors as you wish!
