Sock-Yarn Shawls II: Juniper

Today, I want to talk about the first shawl pattern in the book, Juniper.
This shawl is a bottom-up short-row shawl. One of my favorites to knit and wear! Juniper was a shawl I designed for a magazine a couple years ago. The magazine unfortunately stopped making new issues and I was left with an unpublished pattern and a perfectly lovely shawl . As soon as I had the go-ahead to make Sock-Yarn Shawls II, I knew it had to include it.

I'm totally in love with the lace pattern along the bottom.
The lace edge is worked with two charts. So, with extra yarn, you can add extra repeats of the first chart before working the second one. The second chart will then get you set up to work the short rows in the stockinette portion.

I knit the sample in the book out of a beautiful sock yarn from Huckleberry Knits. She has tons of great fingering weight yarn in her shop that would be perfect for your own Juniper. Sorry not sorry about what clicking that link does to your wallet.

The shawls have just arrived back to me after being with my book publisher for many many months. I've been wearing Juniper almost nonstop. Here's my favorite way to wear it:
(Side Note: I bought that shirt on super clearance ($11) from ModCloth last year. It's possible I bought it because it reminded me of a ball of yarn.)

I think this one is going to be a hit with the knitters. They're so fun to make!

Stay tuned I'll be back on Thursday to talk about the next shawl in the book - Zuzu.
