All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Check out my group, Minnesota Nice Knits and Facebook Page, Minnesota Nice Knits for testing calls and special offers!

The Blooming Ginger Shawl starts out nice and easy with a garter tab cast on and large swath of garter stitch before venturing on to a unique lacy stitch. I have included instructions for resizing the shawl should you so desire. Pattern has been tested and approved.

Difficulty Intermediate; pattern requires garter tab cast on, k, p, ssk, k2tog, yo, use of stitch markers, chart reading, and elastic bind off.
