This month’s design came as a request from Jimmy (Laura Zander, owner of Jimmy Beans). She loves the simplicity of the garter stitch shawls we’ve been seeing so much of lately, and she wanted one knit out of our new exclusive yarn from Malabrigo, the Lace Superwash. I jumped at the chance to design with this brand new yarn, and boy am I glad I did! The Malabrigo Lace Superwash is a truly gorgeous yarn. The richly saturated colors and softness of the yarn create the perfect combo for this design.

You can knit this simple Shawlette using either 2 or 4 skeins of the Malabrigo Lace Superwash with the yarn held single or double. When held single and knit on US size 3 needles, this yarn is light and airy creating a little wisp of warmth around your neck. When held double, and knit on US size 7 needles, the result is closer to a DK weight and creates a slightly warmer shawl. Either way, the Malabrigo colors shine beautifully! I hope you enjoy this new free pattern from Jimmy Beans Wool!
