SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!
This pattern was designed for the Dyelectable Yarns & Mad Science Yarns 7 Deadly Sins club in 2011. Finally available to purchase on Ravelry as of March 2016.
Greed is a lace, raglan- style shawl, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters will be able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
Instead of having one center spine like most triangle shawls, Greed is designed to have four sections with three spines, which allows the shawl to drape nicely over your shoulders.
