Pardon my horrible pinning job - but here is my first ever shawlette design: Darcy Shawlette. It's a small shawlette, meant to be worn around the neck. It begins in stockinette stitch, in a traditional triangular, top-down construction, and ends in a circular lace border. I'm finishing up the tech editing on my PDF and I have a few test knitters already knitting this shawlette up! It will be a free pattern, of course! I'll keep you updated!!
I don't know that I'll ever become a "designer," but I had fun trying out something new by creating this shawl. And after designing this shawl, I learned a lot about the design process and already have a bazillion ideas floating around in my head. We'll see how it goes. I have mad respect for those who design intricate garments. I am humbled by your work and offer my pattern as a very amateur attempt at design. :)
The Darcy Shawlette is knit in fingering wt yarn, approx. 400-440 yds in a US Size 7 circular needle. If interested in test knitting this pattern, give me a holler.
Knit on and go out and try something NEW!
