Jodi and Tracie are two shawls I designed to honor two very good friends. Get at 30% of BOTH SHAWLS if you buy them together -you will need to put them together in your cart and buy them at the same time for the discount to work-.

When I came to Alberta to finally meet them for the first time, Tracie asked me to design a shawl inspired by her sister, so I did! But I also surprised her designing one for herself. I wasn’t feeling so creative, so I named it Tracie.

Tracie is a modern triangular shawl, with short rows that make it asymmetrical, and with a very deep V. It’s designed to show off your beautiful work and yarn, but it can also be worn all scrunched up around your neck.

The yarns I used can be replaced with any heavy weight fingering weight. Some testers have used lighter weight and heavier weight yarns, and it looks equally nice with these options.
