If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

There’s yarn kits for this pattern available via O-Wool.

Is there a little girl in you, too?

There’s definitely one in me. I know that pink is not the color I usually feel pretty in. It’s so loud, so emphasizing, like a huge exclamation mark. That’s not me.

But then again, I’m sometimes very much drawn towards it.

When I looked at the O-Wash palette, there were these two colorways that instantly caught my eye - a dark, brown-ish grey and that stunning pink pop of color.

I just had to give in… the girl in me won. ♥


  • 2 skeins in „Black Bear“ (color A), 195 g / 656 yds [599 m] used for sample
  • 1 skein in „Bee Balm“ (color B), 99 g / 333 yds [304 m] used for sample

Note: All three skeins have almost completely been used up for the original sample. If you want to make sure you don’t run out of yarn, do a gauge swatch. Also, you can safely leave out 1 repeat of Section 2 for a smaller (but still genereously sized) version of the shawl.

Pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
