Road Trip Shawl

A new year, clean slate and fresh plans! I think we all feel that little pinch of excitement as a new year begins. At least I do!

I have been working hard to get a few patterns ready - many samples have been waiting for a long time to have proper pictures taken and patterns written. This shawl is the first of those! Hope you enjoy a lot of soothing garter stitch, a little ribbing and some brioche!

Hoping that 2018 is the best year yet for everyone!

Since I'll do a roadtrip this summer, this shawl would be perfect :) I really like the colors, I will do it exactly like that! My horoscope gave me the idea to make a journey on my own. I don't utterly believe in the stars, but I use them to start new things, like this journey. I even started knitting because of it :) Thanks again for the pattern.
