It’s time for some pink! Once again, this is a shawlette designed especially for variegated yarn. I acquired this pretty yarn at a trunk show I had during the DC yarn crawl at the absolutely lovely Knot House in Frederick, MD.

fhp then debuted at a trunk show at one of my favorite LYS’s, Love2Knit in RI. The LYS owner was testing it with 2 skeins of Koigu and kept saying, “Wow, it looks ribbed.” I really like how it’s ribbed.“ And later, “This really has a textured rib appearance! I love that!” So, when it came time to name it I couldn’t resist. Those of us in the US, at least, might recall a certain advertisement where something was ribbed fhp (for her pleasure). I hope you will knit this for your pleasure (but it’s recommended usage is only as a shawl.)

Final Measurements: 43” along neck edge by 14” at deepest point.

Materials

1 skein of sock yarn - at least 350 yards. Just continue for as long as you like. I used 390 yards of Dragonfly Djinni in Save the Tatas for this.

US 6/4mm needle.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
