Pie Crust Shawl
In the New Year I’m going to be taking all my patterns offline for an extended period so I can re-do layouts, photography, some samples and reorganise my store to take into account new tax laws applicable in the EU from 1st January.
The patterns won’t be available for quite a while so if you want to grab anything do so now!
All patterns are 25% off until midnight on 26th December (no coupon needed) after which they will be deactivated for a while. Here’s the store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/patricia-martin-designs

I used a needle with an 80cm cable throughout but you might want to use a longer cable for the outer border

Darning needle for weaving in ends
Optional: 18g of beads in an appropriate size for your yarn.
