Meet the my latest wardrobe essential. I finally finished this baby, knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina’s* Kitten colorway.
My new petite shawlette is another version of my first crescent shawllette. The gauge was smaller on the Pashmina, which required some reworked math to result in similar dimensions.
Nothing’s ever easy.
When I eek out time to write the darn pattern up, I will include two-for-one instructions for a couple of different gauges and corresponding yarn weights. That’s always nice.
We all know I LOVE Madelinetosh, but this is my first time knitting with the classic Pashmina base*. (The hat I also have on my needles is in the Pashmina worsted base, which I have used several times throughout the past year.) I can’t believe this skein has been languishing in the hall closet for the better part of a year! It was amazing yarn, and this shawl was the perfect one-skein wonder.
I love the simplicity of this petite shawlette. You can wear it with anything, every day. Pure stockinette contrasted with a classic garter band. It’s easy knitting, as long as you are comfortable trying some basic short row knitting. Nothing fussy. This baby has class all the way to the finish line.
As you read this, we are on our final family camp out. (I scheduled the post in advance of our trip.) Hopefully, if I am lucky, I am working on a new pair of man socks from a shaded chair, overlooking a lake. Fingers crossed.
*The original recommendation to try the Pashmina came to me via a comment from Fog Knits! I love reader advice. You gals have so much good stuff to share!
