Hedgerows Shawlette

Hedgerows Shawlette 1I’m so very pleased to announce that my first knitting pattern has officially been released!

Hedgerows Shawlette is available as a free PDF download.

An asymmetrical triangular shawlette, Hedgerows is perfect for that special 4-ounce skein of handspun yarn. It’s designed to let you use up all of your yarn, without worrying about weighing as you go along. It also works great for a single skein of sock yarn, and it is well-suited for variegated or self-striping yarn. It will show off a wide range of yarn weights, as well, from lace all the way up to sport or DK.

This should give you a better idea of Hedgerows’ shape:

I was spurred to create this pattern by the 4-ounce challenge, and although I started right away, with all my other commitments for the past few months I was working right up to the wire to get this done. But, I made it, yay!

The yarn I used in the bright sample seen here is my handspun, made from Spunky Eclectic CorriePaca (80 percent corriedale, 20 percent alpaca), in the Twenty-Ten colorway. My two-ply yarn measured 13 wraps per inch.

  1. What fabulous news! Congratulations!!!

  2. Sorry I was such a bad beta tester! I really am still planning on making this at some point, I think it looks great.

  3. YAY! This looks wonderful! I wish I had the talent to make it.

  4. I’ve just found your blog and downloaded your pattern – thanks for both. The fractal method of spinning is certainly very effective.
