Are you looking for an easy shawl pattern to use up every last scrap of a totally mad variegated skein of wondrous rainbow beauty?
Here it is!
This is the Caesious pattern from Hunter Hammersen’s Curls.
I used my precious skein of Highland Handmades Sugar Maple Sock in the Fruju colourway. This was sold to help towards SillyFru‘s medical bills after she was diagnosed with Hairy Cell Leukemia.
While I knew that this yarn would stripe up beautifully as a sock or glove, I was keen to make the best possible use of the available yardage.
I saved just enough yarn to knit a Barn Raising Square.
I wanted something big and bold and beautiful.
And I got it!
It’s squooshy too! :)
I knitted 4 rows at a time, here and there.
Once I got going, it grew remarkably quickly.
And I learned how to do a Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off (using Ysolda’s video) to finish.
Yay! New skillz!
But I didn’t realise just how big it was until it was blocked.
Now I just need to decide which shawl to knit next, because obviously I am working my way through the book…
