Indie Design GAL: Shawls Part 1

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2017 series. Starting November 21st I am highlighting some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will showcase 5-6 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

Chance Cove by Allison O’Mahony

From the pattern description
Chance Cove provides a modern twist on the classic, triangular shawl. Worked from side to side in a worsted weight yarn, it features a sleek, geometric lace pattern. The clean lines of the lace paired with simple, garter stitch edgings make it anything but fussy.

Available in one size, and uses approximately 880 yds of worsted weight yarn.

Notions of Colour Shawl by Heike Campbell

From the pattern description
The pattern is ideal for those who like to experiment with different colour and light/dark combinations and with variegated yarns and who like to learn a new stitch pattern in a smaller project.

Available in one size, and uses approximately 1040 yds of fingering weight yarn.

Old Salt by Valérie Miller

From the pattern description
In English naval history , an “old salt” is an experienced sailor and teller of sea stories. Inspired by seafaring stories passed down through generations, this gansey-style shawl transitions from one stitch pattern to the next while framed in soft waves.

Available in one size, and uses approximately 835-850 yds of aran weight yarn.

Lightning Thief by Lily Go

From the pattern description
Lighting Thief is a crescent shawl worked from the top down without short rows. This is an easy pattern to memorize, interesting to knit with stunning result. Perfect pattern to relax after the Christmas and New Year hectic preparation.

Available in 5 sizes, and uses approximately 330-1220 yds of fingering weight yarn.

Across the Brook by Adrienne Ku

From the pattern description
This lovely shawl is knit with two colors of fingering weight yarn. The main body is composed of bands of lace that fall into an easy-to-remember pattern. Garter stitch rows set off the contrasting color border sections that continue the vertical bands.

Available in one size, and uses approximately 350-675 yds of fingering weight yarn.

A note: I take care to not highlight the same pattern as previous years, so do be sure to check out the GAL 2016 series of posts. Many of those will also be eligible this year for the GAL.
