I love early autumn when there is just the hint of cool in the air and the first few leaves on the ground. This shawl is the same…a nice transitional project to take you from hot summer days to die-hard fall/winter knitting…with just a few leaves to keep you engaged through an, otherwise, fairly easy lace project. For this project, we are using one of our new hand-dyed yarns called Antique. It is 395 yards/ball, 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, and pre-caked for you into convenient center pull balls…great when you just need to CAST ON RIGHT NOW! There are 2 size options with this kit: 1 ball makes a shawl that is approx 45″ x 20″ and 2 balls makes a shawl that is approx. 63″ x 30″. This pattern is free through the month of September when you purchase 1 ball of Island Yarn Antique.
