This pattern is for a shawl with very playful features. Not only starts it with a triangular part, the largest part of this shawl is made out of two parallel but separate, rectangular parts. You can also knit a completely triangular version. And on top of that, it is an entirely new stitch pattern, which can be described as both classy and elegant. Everyday is August 2nd is to be knitted with 2 skeins of 100 gram (fingering or sock yarn).

I am very grateful to Indigodragonfly for providing yarn for this project. She supported me with the softest stuff ever, I love it! But given the name, I don’t dare asking her how she came up with the name of this colorway (’You punched the highlights out of her hair’). You can find more of her wonderful skeins here.

And for those of you who are curious about the name of this design, read my short story Sit by the fire and don’t forget… (from November 16).
