My new pattern HAVTORN shawl is released! You can find the pattern now on Ravelry.
Havtorn is an elongated triangular shaped shawl that begins
with a garter tab cast on and grows by six stitches every two rows. The
shawl is built in two sections, each using either of the two colors used
as its main color.
The pattern is carefully designed for you to always work comfortably with one strand at a time. Once the body is complete, a delicious textured border is added. The spaced petit picot bind off gives the shawl its finishing touch.
I had so much fun designing this shawl. I played a lot with different textures and stitch combinations as I just couldn't decide at first which ones to use. This involved what felt like endless swatching. But I have gained a lot of insight and found new stitch combos that I will be able to also use for upcoming designs as well. And that made a lot of fun! The design process for Havtorn was very inspiring.
I had the idea for this design for quite some time although it also took its time to come to life. To create a vision in real life sometimes takes some experimenting and going back and forth, as I also did while sample knitting. And so, the pattern is now released a little later as I was hoping for. But I think it was definately worth the wait! I am so in love with this design! All that beautiful texture and the different elements that work together and complement each other are just amazing.
My favorite part is the textured border in combination with the petit picot bind off. It makes this shawl so elegant and feminine.
I can't wait to see some more colorful versions of yours since my sample uses neutral colors. That too was an experiment of sorts. I usually work with colorful yarns. During testing I already had the pleasure of a lovely interpretation in red and beige which I find so beautiful.
So don't miss out on the 20% release celebration discout and use code HAVTORN on Ravelry!
