NOTE: EXCLUDED FROM Irish Girlie Knits February Birthday Sale (only individual patterns 20% off). The Sullivan Family Collection features 4 shawl designs and 2 additional smaller accessory patterns that are inspired by special places for my family.
The first pattern available is Big Trees, a top-down crescent shawl. My childhood summers were spent in Arnold, California, near Calaveras Big Trees State Park. The lace in this crescent shawl reminded me of those tall trees. The four different colors of yarn capture the many hues of that forest, but you could also knit this in just one or two colors as well.
The second pattern is Nestldown, a top-down laceweight shawl. A mystical, magical place is how my sister described Nestldown, the lovely estate where she got married. I knit this shawl especially for her wedding, a day filled with so much love. The hearts that travel down the center panel and into the edging on this shawl symbolize all the love I have for her and my wishes of a lifetime of love and happiness in her new marriage. It was a magical day indeed.
The third pattern is Warwick, a top-down one-skein sock yarn shawl. This shawl was inspired by the trees in the backyard of my childhood home on Warwick Street. A deceptively simple, yet elegant design that requires just one skein of fingering weight yarn.
The fourth pattern is Knocknagree, a top-down crescent shaped shawl that features two sizes and options for using either one color or two. My grandfather was born in Knocknagree, a small village located in the north-west of County Cork, Ireland, just a mile from the Cork-Kerry border. This crescent-shaped shawl was inspired by the rural, lush, country village.
The fifth pattern is Rathmore, an infinity scarf knit in the round. Knocknagree is just a few miles up the road from the small town of Rathmore, County Kerry. This infinity scarf was inspired by that rural and lush countryside.
The sixth pattern is San Mateo, an infinity scarf knit in the round and using fingering weight yarn. My hometown, San Mateo, is a suburb on the San Francisco Peninsula. With mild temperatures throughout the year, a light, airy infinity scarf is the perfect accessory for just about any season here.
Patterns are also available individually for $6 each (making the collection savings of $18).
