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 a funny story behind this shawl. I bought the yarn, Ysolda’s Blend no. 1, in March 2016 at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. It was so soft and lovely I couldn’t resist.
I packed it in my suitcase, along with a nice gift for my husband: a bottle of 50-year-old whisky. The bottle was hand-filled (and maybe not closed as tight as it should have been), and when I opened my suitcase back in Germany I found that some of the whisky had leaked out into my new wool!
Fortunately, I like the smell of whisky, because it lingered as I was knitting up this shawl.
You don’t need to pour whisky on your own yarn to enjoy knitting Whiskyfied! It’s an asymmetrical triangle with slipped stitches zig-zagging tipsily throughout the body. Garter stitch and a few lines of garter stripes on stockinette add a bit of punch, as well.
Please note: The original yarn is currently not available, but Zelazna 2-ply from Martin’s Lab is a wonderful substitute.
Pattern has been tech-edited and test knitted.
