Afresh is an exclusive pattern for the 3rd and last kit of 2019’s N Club! It uses an extra large cone of Julie Asselin’s Nurtured Fine, milled exclusively for us!

2019’s N Club is sold out for this year… but sign up’s for 2020’s club are OPEN NOW!!
Afresh, a new way of looking at a shawl that will stay put! Knit with Julie Asselin’s GORGEOUS soft and wooly Nurtured Fine, milled in an exclusive colorway that evokes a day at Cayuga Lake.

The shawl starts with a long “tab”, it then starts to grow into a boomerang shape. One row buttonholes are worked throughout the body to create depth on a garter stitch ground. Finally a beaded chevron border is worked. The tab then can be used to weave in and out of the holes to help keep your shawl in place.
