Yesterday I finally released my first self-published shawl pattern of 2017. Say hello to Demantur:
This pattern came from the idea that many times I'll use a larger stitch pattern in the body of my shawl, and then finish the piece off with a smaller lace pattern. "What if I switch it around?" I thought. Turns out, it was a good idea. It was an absolute blast to knit.
Demantur starts from the top-down and uses 850 yards of fingering weight yarn. It's a huge shawl, but I've included some notes on how to make it smaller. I guess you could make it bigger too - I didn't include notes for that - because I think most people will think it's already big enough. :)
I finished the shawl off with an i-cord bind off. I love that technique! But, if i-cord bind off isn't for you, that's ok! Just use your favorite bind off for shawls to complete it.
I'll be talking more about my new Patreon page later this week here on the blog, but my $5+ patrons do receive a coupon code to get Demantur for free. You can read more about that here.
Hope you enjoy the new pattern as much as I do. Happy Shawl Knitting!
