FO - Shawlette Part Two

Some readers may remember when, earlier this summer, I mentioned I had four FO's but ended up posting only two shawl projects (a solid and a striped version of the Sothia shawlette) and wondered where the heck the other two were.

I originally had two ideas for this shawlette in garter stitch stripes.  The question at the time was, which design should I use?  Answer - both! I decided I would publish Sothia first, and save the second version for later, to publish after wrapping up some other things this summer.  

The yarn used for the pattern design is the same as for Sothia - Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light fingering weight yarn.  

The wide, shallow triangle shape remains, but the light, delicate knitted-on picot edging gives a substantially different look and feel to the piece from the deeply draping ruffle of Sothia

I love these little shawlettes and have worn them a lot since I made them.  They are easy to throw on with any top, and add a nice splash of color near the face.  Sorry for the crummy photos, but it was getting late when I shot them, I'll have better ones in the pattern release post soon.  Pattern is currently being test knit!


  1. Love, love your new design, Robin! The two versions are equally gorgeous. Oh my! Need to make some time this autumn for some shawl knitting :)

  2. Very lovely! I like your color choices and the size of the shawls.

  3. These are gorgeous shawls! I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern completed. :)


  4. Beautiful shawls Robin. They do look very wearable for everyday use :-)) I wear my simple shawls more often too :-))

  5. Isabelle, Lidia, Lina and Diana, thank you all so very much for the nice comments, I've been itching to get these out all summer. :)
