yoga shawl

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

I know, I pretty much feel this way about a lot of my knits.  But, this?  This is my new favorite.  
I just love the different ways it can be worn.  Truly the most versatile piece I have ever made.  (And, I didn't even photograph it while wearing it like a cowl and a couple of other ways!)
Each end has a chevron pattern that requires full attention.  With miles of stockinette in between.  That to me is a perfect combination.  
I ended up having to order another skein of yarn after I finished what the pattern calls for.  Not sure why.  I didn't get the same dye lot.  Thankfully you can't tell.  

Pattern:  Yoga Shawl
Yarn:  Brooklyn Tweed, Loft 7 skeins, Soot  (the pattern calls for 6)
Needle size:  US 5

  3. Thank for feeding my queue. It's a lot better for my figure when you tip me toward your new favorite knits than your new favorite cookies. I love the versatility. I watched the video on the pattern page and now I'm even more excited to make my own!!
