New pattern Lamia and a Giveaway
Oh boy am I ever behind with posting! Let's have a contest to get things rolling again shall we? Introducing Lamia, a shawl in two sizes but really any size you want it to be! Infinitely customizeable and perfect for variegated yarns this shawl is a quick and easy knit for Christmas, or any gift you might need.
The sample is worked in Knitpicks Swish Tonal, a Superwash wool that is soft and cozy while still being easy to wash. There are two written sizes of this pattern, the small size is a perfect neck size or small shoulder shrug, and the large size is a bonafide shawl which makes a sumptuous neck piece with loads of cozy folds. This pattern includes information to help you modify the length to any amount of yardage, and/or modify the repeats for any gauge of yarn. Perfect for those colourful hanks you picked up and can't figure out what to do with and also very beautiful if worked in a solid colour.
I designed this pattern because I am more likely to purchase vareigated yarn than any other yarn and often come home with one or two skeins and no pattern ideas. It seems that the more complicated the yarn becomes the less options there are for patterns that work with it.
If you would like to win one of two copies of Lamia please leave a comment on this post telling me what your biggest impulse yarn buy is, the giveaway ends on Dec 9th at 7pm Spokane time.
You can also buy this pattern for $4.99 through Ravelry
