Hi! Today I am going to talk about a design that was released this last April, in the beginning of the lockdown here in Santiago. It's a half-pi fingering weight shawl, called Parral. I love knitting shawls, and even thought I don't get the chance to wear them as much as I would love to, they are one of my favourite pieces to knit and design - you have so many shapes, constructions and freedom with stitch patterns that I almost always have one on the needles.
But back to this one, Parral is a spanish word for sort of like a wild vineyard that has not been pruned. It is a squishy garter stitch, with bobbles, lace and twisted rib, worked from the top-down with an i-cord tab cast-on and edges, this pattern will fly off of your needles in no time. This project is also great stash buster as you can use different colors for each section, minis, etc.
