New Pattern: Turning Point

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Maybe it was the golden tree leaves or an evening chill;
something suddenly makes you realize that the weather has reached a turning point and it’s time for a knitted piece to warm your shoulders.
Turning Point can be worn as a shawlette for that special event, or as a scarf wrapped around your neck every day on the way to work. With quick-to-knit basic lace and sparkly beads for a little challenge; at this weight you could probably knit one for your best friend and one for yourself before winter sets in.

Summer’s Twilight Shawl

A great first lace shawl, the lace pattern is easy to memorize and all that is required is to knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog and ssk. This top-down airy shawl is the perfect quick-to-make wrap to wear to Prom (which is what I made it for), an evening out or anytime a little elegance is needed. Make it in a sock yarn and you could wear it with jeans and a t-shirt! Tie the ends behind your back and you have a shrug-like garment. The gauze like mohair stripes cascade over your back like a waterfall, flowing smoothly into the frothy gently ruffled edge.Want it bigger? Just add more yarn and keep on going in the body pattern before adding the ruffle.back
