The “Gift of the Mermaid” shawl, originally designed for a mystery knitalong, is now available in standard pattern format. Worked with two colors of fingering/ sock yarn, this crescent-shaped shawl keeps things fun, switching stitch patterns every few inches. The accompanying story takes you on a mermaid’s journey to go along with the pattern.
The shawl was designed to be worked with one variegated or hand-painted skein and a coordinating tonal/semisolid — but it also looks great in a gradient yarn. This is an intermediate-level pattern that includes lots of description about the stitch patterns, along with photo tutorials, so that you can learn new stitches without stress. Designer support is provided if you run into questions.
