Be True to Yourself
Mad May is here, so this pattern is only $2 during the month of May. Think….Madelinetos Tosh Sock!
“Be True to Yourself” is a easy to knit shawl that uses five colors in stockinette stitch with a crochet boarder. There are beads used when you cast on for each edge, plus during the crochet edge. Let us start with some beads, add some color, do some simple shaping, create a decorative border, sew on a jazzy button and end up with a fabulous shawl that drapes effortlessly around your shoulders.
