Havasu Falls

IMG_5479

My newest pattern, Havasu Falls, has just been released! Inspired by the amazing blues of Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon and also by one of my all-time favorite songs (Havasu Falls by Michelle Malone), this crescent shawl is knit from the top down using one skein of Freia Ombre Lace in the colorway Ice Queen.

I knew I wanted to create a pattern that looked like a waterfall itself. The colors of this gradient yarn were perfect for this project. The shawl starts with solid stockinette where the deepest blues are. The lace begins as the yarn transitions to the lighter blues, giving it the look of the light foamy waters at the base of the waterfall.

This pattern is easy to customize to make larger or smaller and with more or less lace. Instructions on how to make these changes are included in the pattern. The pattern includes charted and full written instructions.

Havasu Falls can be found on Ravelry, Craftsy, LoveKnitting, EtsyPatternfish, and here on my blog.

Pesto is a garter stitch shawl with lace border knit in one piece from end to end. It can be knit with one skein of sock yarn. The size of the shawl can be customized depending on the amount of yarn you have so it is the perfect pattern for making the most of a special skein of yarn! Instructions on how to do this are included. The pattern instructions are both charted and written.

When I first started designing this shawl I knew I wanted it to meet three important criteria. It needed to be simple. It needed to be quick. And it needed to use only one skein of yarn. The sample is knit using only one skein of SweetGeorgia’s Tough Love Sock in the color Lettuce Wrap. I came up with the name because the vibrant green and the little leaves running along the edge remind me of yummy pesto!

This shawl can be knit up in less than a week so it makes for perfect gift knitting with the holidays just around the corner! Or make it as a gift for yourself!
