SPREAD the LOVE I’m feeling the winter doldrums and want to spread a little cheer and love. 50% off all my patterns!!

Shaw’s Cove is a crescent shaped two-color shawl knit in one piece from the center-top outward. It is shaped by all the increasing done on the edging. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.

Dani at Sunshine Yarns sent me these two gorgeous skeins to design with and I couldn’t be happier with how they played together. The main color is called Pacific so I went looking for Pacific beach names and came across Shaw’s Cove… seemed about perfect to me!
