Decem-brrr is here and it is shawl weather.
I recently started a Multnomah shawl. I originally got this pattern from Ravelry but it seems after an update on their site it is no longer available. Luckily I had it saved and could print the pattern out again.
The very first multnomah shawl I knitted out of brown and beige sock yarn and it was gifted.
It is a straight forward knit pattern, with 4 rows of pattern once you get to that part.
Last year I knit a slightly smaller version of the same pattern.
It knots easily behind the neck and makes a lovely warm scarf for under or over your winter coat.
I had already made a pair of fingerless mitts from the same yarn, so that is why the multnomah was a bit smaller. Fingerless mitts are my all time favourite and I wear them all the time when we go out. I also have a pair of knitted mittens that fit over the top for those really cold days.
While having a clean out of the craft room closet I came across this lovely yarn in yellows and greens. It had originally been purchased for a yarn crawl pattern in 2017, but it was just one of those finished items that just didn’t appeal to me once completed.
So it got unravelled and the yarn stuck in the craft closet. There is probably more than needed to complete another multnomah shawl and I’m hoping there will be enough left over to knit a matching pair of fingerless mitts.
Now that I’m up to the patterned border I’m getting to use a lot of the stitch markers I made. These are my favourites, tea cups and teapots.
The way 2020 has been I probably should of chosen the virus shawl pattern to knit!!! Perhaps that will be my next knitting project, as it doesn’t look like this virus will be over anytime soon.
Stay warm and safe and keep on knitting!
I do have quite a collection of shawls and I’ve also gifted a lot.
