For accessibility this pattern collection is available in my etsy.com shop. This sweet little shawlette is a great way to loom knit a shawl if you are not quite ready to work with fine weight yarns, or want a fast, simple project. The shaping techniques used for a larger V-back shawl are the similar to the shaping used for this shawlette, but you are working with bulky or worsted weight wool, depending on your loom size. This pattern is perfect for learning short row ruffles, practicing blocking, and enjoying working with a pretty variegated yarn. The shawlette may be worn with the point in the front, tucked into a jacket, or with the point in the back, showing off your ruffles. The “simple” version of the pattern omits the ruffle.

Sweet on Ruffles is part of the ebook “Loom Knit Shawls: from Simple to Sublime”. Five loom knit shawl patterns and their variations will take you from a simple small shawlette on a large gauge loom, to a delicate lace weight yarn confection made on a ½ inch gauge loom. All the patterns may be made on a single 60 peg ½ inch gauge hat loom.

The e-book includes two formats, large print 24 point font, and a 12 point paper-saver version. A photo gallery is also included. Both versions are plain text to work with screen readers and tablets. There is a separate photo gallery file, to let you print the patterns the way you like to use them.

My patterns are low vision and screen reader accessible. The text is black, Arial and large print 24 point font. All of the directions are fully written out and no charts are relied on to complete the patterns. No italics are used. They are screen reader and tablet friendly.
