Fun in the Sun Sideways Knit Shawl

Shawl de Sol

Shawl de Sol

Here’s a sunny little shawl knit sideways  in sections with some simple wrap and turns that make wedges which shape the shawl.  The lace border is worked with the main shawl.  Simple, fun, and cheery shawl.  Made with fingering weight Sky High Fibers Superwash Merino Sock yarn, it’s also fast to make.

Pattern and yarn available at my new website http://knittingvirtuoso.com  or at http://www.ravelry.com/designers/margie-mitchell

Cardigan is best of both worlds

2013-04-05 11.50.02

V-Lace Cardi combines the ease of bottom up construction and in the round ease with a newer technique for working set-in sleeves.  Sleeves are worked in the round from the top down and feature short rows where the wrap and turn is not picked up, but rather a design element of the sleeves.  A-line construction and one-button closure adds to the flattering look of the piece.  Cardigan is made using Berocco Maya.
