In today's Sock Yarn Shawls II
featured pattern post, it's the last of the small one-skein shawls. It's Monarda
I love this shawl. I'm going to go ahead and say it's my favorite one in the book. I really love how this design came together for me. It's knit from the top-down and can be adjusted to be bigger if you want. I have serious plans to make a larger one!
The stitch pattern is one I used a few years ago, in my Timberland shawl
Timberland was one of my earliest patterns, and while I do like it, it just doesn't do that beautiful stitch pattern justice. So I decided to play with it a bit, and Monarda was born.
It's no secret around here that I love the look of garter stitch and lace together. And this pattern just marries them perfectly for me.
I hope you love it like I do! The shawl in the book is knit out of the always lovely Madelinetosh Tosh Sock
. I love this so much. It's a staple in my stash.
Stay tuned for next week - I'll be showing off some of the larger shawls in the book, starting with Starlit
