I love my Birthday shawl! This clever triangular shawl uses knitting on the WS to create the purl ridges. Therefore you only need to purl to maintain the stockinette sections! The stitch pattern is great for showing off hand dyed yarn, and the shape is flattering!
Wear as a shawl or wrap around your neck as a generous scarf. For more info see the pattern page here.

400 yards (366 m) of fingering weight. I used Bolinas Sock by Tactile in color Denim. If you get a chance you should check out Maia’s yarns, they are gorgeous! Thank you again Maia for the yarn support, it was so nice meeting you!
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.
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.
