Summery Shawls and Cowls

 Amy Miller's Pendulum Shawl is an offering for a class by Adrienne.  You can choose from many of our sock yarns in solids or semi-solids to create your own summer shawl.  
Adrienne has knit more than one and can help you as you learn the pattern. 
 Cowls aren't just for winter anymore. 
This shop pattern can be knit up in Madelinetosh Merino Light for a soft stunning look. 
By switching between two needles sizes as you knit, you create the pretty ruche pattern.  Knit on straights with an easy provisional cast on, you pull it all together with a woven kitchener stitch at the end.  
Just the thing to wear with a sleeveless something on a chilly night at Ravinia...
 If you haven't seen the Pincha Shawl yet, you'll want to get acquainted.  A Knitty Spring/Summer pattern for 2016 is stunning in your favorite multi -colorway.  
This may be one you'll want to work on in an intermediate class offering. 
The shawl uses the Fingering weight yarn of your choice. 

Finally, Steven West Westknits Sharktooth pattern is also lighting up the internet.  His design is shown here in Madelinetosh Light;  we have many great Madelinetosh yarns for you in the Studio now. 

Come in and make your Spring Summer knit plans with us. 
Don't forget crochet....
we have Shibui Rain 
that is perfect for summer shawls. Rain is light and works up beautifully.  

We hope to see you soon.
