Warm Weather Knitalong with Prizes!

Ocean City Shawlette

Ocean City Shawlette

Get your warm weather knitting mojo moving with a knitalong for either of these lace shawlettes. Ocean City Shawlette has a lace wave design and is worked sideways. See You in September is worked bottom up with an acorn and oak leaf design. The size and airiness of either pattern, make it comfortable to knit in warmer weather and both shawlettes can be worn year round. Also, if you have never knit an acorn, it’s pretty cool (no pun intended). Ocean City Shawlette can be knit by someone new to lace, but See You in September is definitely for a more experienced lace knitter.

As part of the knitalong fun, I am offering a $30 gift certificate to, free patterns and some surprises along the way. If you want to join us, read the first post in this Ravelry thread to get all the details.

** If you are in the EU and want to participate, please go to my website for the patterns and you won’t be charged VAT tax.

By her own admission, Dee O’Keefe is obsessed with lace shawls. And it shows. Her design esthetic is amazing! I love the 3-D lace and cable border on Lilyanna above.

Special Offer on New Cowl Pattern

CW and jacket

Here is my newest pattern – Cowl Whitman. It is a stockinette stitch cowl with a funky stranded color design. The cowl works up quickly in worsted weight yarn and begins and ends with some rows of twisted ribbing. The pattern is given in two sizes but either size can be doubled to make a significantly larger infinity cowl. Only the small size is pictured and it’s designed with a snug fit to warm the neck.

Pattern is on sale through midnight January 9, for $4.80.

A note about the name: I was having a hard time coming up with a name. My husband is very funny and after much trial and error, he suggested that I name it to honor my mom, Carol Whitman. She would be thrilled to have a pattern named after her and would very much appreciate the humor in it.

Sizes: Small (Large)

Blocked measurements:

  • Circumference 20.5˝/52.4cm (30.75˝/78cm)
  • Depth: 8˝/20.5cm for all sizes

Gauge: 21 sts/27 rows = 4˝/10cm in stranded pattern after blocking.

Recommended yarn:
Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, 100% superwash merino, 200 yards/182 meters per skein, 1(2) skeins Espadrilles (MC) and 1 skein Dirty Panther (CC).

Pattern assumes you can cast on, knit, purl, knit in the round strand two colors and bind off. Instructions are given in chart and written form.
