Today I’m so excited to share a new pattern with you– the Midautumn Shawl! I had SO much fun knitting this one up. It’s constructed as a top down triangle and goes very quickly once you get used to the stitch pattern. I was really lucky to have my gorgeous friend Lauren model it for me. I love how the purl ridges play off each other and create a clean line before the rib. It’s one of those designs that… Read more »
