As we greet the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the golden light of Autumn, we also leave behind the hazy heat and fields of wildflowers of Summer. The Ever Blooming shawl lets you take a little bit of Summer with you into the colder months.

I designed this shawl as a Summer KAL for The Local Yarn Store in South Orange, New Jersey. Ever Blooming is a top-down triangular, textured shawl. Knit in fingering-weight yarn, it begins with a garter tab and ends with a scalloped knitted on border. The sections are easy to memorize, and the combination of stitches and simple techniques makes for a relaxing but visually interesting knit. This is a good shawl for an advanced beginner who would like to try their hand at a variety of stitches or the advanced knitter who wants an easy summertime knit. The pattern includes instruction for a 3-color version, shown above, and for a 4-color version. The shawl will work well in solids, tonals, or in a combination of solids, tonals and variegated yarns, as shown above.

Skills: Knit, purl, garter tab cast on, yarn over, knit two together, purl two together, slip slip knit, short rows, knit front and back, make one right, make one left.
