For the past few years I have been developing my own knitting patterns inspired by what I see. This is pretty cool right? Yeah I thought so too. The worst part about this sort of adhoc knitting is that it’s hard to duplicate something I’ve knit. My family and friends have asked me many times why I don’t write the pattern down as I go.
I have tried to write them down, really I have. In fact, I have a number of patterns I’ve started but then got caught up in the knitting and forgot to finish documenting. So, painfully, I am going back and writing up my designs from the pictures that I took of the finished item or from memory.
This will be my first posted pattern. I would classify it as an easy knit which can be completed in an evening and would make a good garment for people just starting lace-work (like me!).
I made this shrug for my niece Annabelle and will give it to her on her 2nd birthday in August. I think it would be nice for a summer evening or a chilly morning.
