New pattern: The Chaya Shawl!

Posted on November 15, 2011 by knittingpatterns4you | 2 Comments

I'm very excited to introduce you to my latest design, the Chaya Shawl and Shawlette!

This shawl is another example of my love for playing with handpainted and self-striping yarns. The knitting on this one is pretty easy: just garter stitch, dropped stitches, and yarn overs, but knitting each half of the triangle in a different direction makes it look way more complicated than it is. The shawl above was knit in Noro Kureyon Sock yarn, and only one skein makes the whole shawl! That's a pretty awesome deal for a Christmas present if you ask me . . .

I also knit up a smaller version using one skein of Colinette Jitterbug sock yarn:

The colorway here is my favorite Colinette colorway, Bright Charcoal, and I've been wearing this little shawlette as a scarf. I love the way the colors play with eachother and the texture of the fabric!

The pattern is available from my webshop or through Ravelry for $5.00. You'll get an immediate email with a link to download the PDF.

Here's a few more shots of the shawls in case you want to see them from various angles, starting with the back of the full-size:

I hope you like this new pattern as much as I do. As always, if you have any questions let me know!

I’m just curious how you joined them ~ did you pick up stitches and turn your work or did you graft it together?

Hi Amy, yes, it’s picked up along the side and knit in the other direction — no seams! =)
