Living the Knit Life


New-ish Pattern Release!!

Previously published in the October 2015 issue of I Like Knitting magazine, Constant Comapanion has just been released by me!  The best part?  Constant Companion is 20% off in my Ravelry store until Midnight (EST) May 30th - no coupon code required! You can find it here.

(I will give you a second to get over the shock that I designed something that isn't a pair of socks....)

This design was inspired by my 3 fur-babies, Maggie, Neville and Guinness.  Yarnovers and decreases create little lacy Paw Prints that meander along the edge of the shawl.

As written, Constant Companion measures 115 inches/ 292 centimetres long and 14 inches/ 35 centimetres deep measured at its deepest point, after blocking. Instructions are included to modify the length and depth of the shawl so that it can be made with as little as one 100 gram skein of fingering weight yarn.
The shawl is knit side to side with the body of the shawl and lace border worked simultaneously. All increases and decreases are worked in the garter stitch body of the shawl.

The timing of this release is especially poignant for me because our family had to say good-bye to Neville this past Monday.  It was sudden, and he was very young, but his legacy lives on in two of my designs,  Constant Companion and SouthPaw.

Happy Knitting!
