Freesia Shawl

Don't you just love all the shawl patterns that are so popular at the moment?  I do!  I found this Freesia shawl pattern and fell in love right away.  Delicate lacy holes, knit diagonally in readily available DK weight.



My stash of Queensland Collection Rustic Tweed in color #916 was a delight to work with.  A lovely subtle tonal yarn in shades of gold with little flecks of black.  I used this same yarn in my Charmed Hitchhiker.

This pattern is Freesia by Annie Lee on Ravelry.  US size 6 (4.0 mm) circular needles and 760 yards (700 meters) will have you clicking along with this one page pattern.  You start in one corner and knit away until you run out of yarn or until you reach the best size for you.  Would look luscious in your fingerling tonal hanks just waiting for that just right project.
You can easily change the needle size and yarn weight to make your shawl unique to you!  I've got a gorgeous red "cake" waiting to be transformed into this shawl.  I'm thinking a very large shawl...one that would come down over the bum!

Hover over any picture to Pin.

Have a great week,
Sheila
