Inner Diva is the sister pattern to my Divalicious socks, designed in celebration of a new LYS opening up.

yarndivas is a delightful new yarn shop located in St. Albert that just opened up in April of this year. The owners, Chrissy and Sherri, reached out to a local dyer and a couple of us local designers to collaborate on some patterns for their grand opening and I had the honor and privilege of being invited on the journey.

Robin, of Rose Hill Yarn, put her talents into coming up with some fabulous colorways in the Yarn Divas colors. Seriously, I don’t know how she did it but she knocked it right out of the park!

This shawl pattern shines well with solid, semi-solid, or lightly-variegated/speckled yarns. Picking an appropriate yarn for this project will ensure you don’t lose the fun texture achieved in the striped sections, nor have a yarn that distracts from the lovely lacework you’ll create.

This top-down triangular-shaped shawl increases 4 stitches every 2 rows, one increase at each edge and then two at the center spine of the shawl. Worked flat, Inner Diva contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts.

22 stitches by 38 rows in garter stitch = 4” / 10 cm, after blocking. While gauge is not important, as the fit is not crucial, changes in gauge will result in size differences and the yardage required to complete the project.

A low-visibility and a screen-reader accessible version of this pattern are available. The low-visibility format is 24pt print in Arial, black font, no italics, and contains written directions (there are no charts to work from). The screen reader format has all the items mentioned above, contains no abbreviations, and accessibility was checked by read-aloud function on both a Windows PC and Android device.

rhyFlower Knits patterns are available in print via our wholesale distributor Deep South Fibers.
