The Tehachapi Project
This shawl is called the The Tehachapi Project because it was written for the Annual CogKNITive Podcast Retreat held in Tehachapi, California in the Mojave Desert. The yarn used is a gradient yarn dyed by Desert Vista Dyeworks and the pattern was written to maximize the color changes in the yarn. It would also look great as a solid color or with variegated yarn.
The Tehachapi Project Shawl comes with written instructions and charts and has been professionally tech edited and test knit for accuracy.
The Shawl is traditional triangle shawl knit from the neck to the long edge. This is a great shawl for beginning Lace Knitters. If you have a question while knitting please visit the Fickle Knitter Design ravelry group for help.
