Over the past few months I have been playing with slipped stitches, and I must say that I am slightly addicted to them!

Lucky charm is a simple triangular shawl that features some very interesting textures that are divided into three different sections! It’s a very relaxing piece that will keep you entertained until the very last section.

In the first two sections the same stitch is worked at a different interval and only on the RS. The last section (probably my favourite) is worked on both the RS and the WS to create these very interesting arrows!

And three little tassels are added at the end to complete the piece.

This pattern was a collaboration with Purple Laines, and the pattern will be only available through their website in kits for a period of three months. It will be released as a single download on ravelry after this period.
