I saw this shawl on Ravelry and had to buy the pattern. Worked in the chevron stitch, this shawl appears like a huge bat wing, very compelling and quite slenderizing. It is designed by Helene Marcy for Annette Patavy Design. I opted to make the smaller version as I am not usually a fan of shawls but can actually see myself wearing this. I’m making it in a heather shade of violet with Bamboo and Ewe, the Joanns wool/bamboo blend yarn in fingering weight.
In addition, I started a fitted jacket several weeks ago using a beautiful gold shade of Rowen’s Purelife Organic Wool called Alder Buckthorn. At this point, all the main parts are done. I still have to add buttoned cuffs and a collar. Since I got distracted with the shawl it may take me a while to finish this project but since it is really more of an autumn piece, I might just wait to post the pattern closer to September.
