I am pleased to announce that the test knit request for my next pattern release – Sweet Dreams Shawl – has now been sent out.
This is a two-colour fingering weight shawl using my signature “curled” shawl shape.
I’m sorry to tell you that this pattern wasn’t created from some magical inspiration. I wasn’t walking along a countryside path, or enjoying a nice day out. I was simply just so desperate to see what these two colours looked like knitted up together.
So I started knitting. That’s it. Sorry.
I finally chose the wave-like patterns, after much ripping out of other stitch patterns, because I was knitting while my little one slept in the evenings. We used to put on beach sound “white noise” as apparently, it would help him sleep. And I imagined dreamy waves for the shawl.
Later on, we found out it was actually waking him up more often (because noise is for day time and quiet is for night time of course!), but I hope he had sweet dreams all the same.
Gauge: 23 sts x 36 rows over 10cm x 10cm of garter stitch worked flat on 4.00mm needles after blocking.
Final Size: 65cm tall x 155cm long
Additional photos can be found on my Ravelry project page here.
Once the test knit is over the pattern will be released on Ravelry as usual.
