Mountain Mist Heathers Shawl

I know I say this with every pattern I design.... but I think this may be my favorite shawl pattern so far. It was created with My Aunt Sue in mind. One of my cousin's helped me pick the color :) It's my favorite yarn for shawls: Estelle Yarns Worsted.



The hardest part about designing patterns is figuring out the stitches to use. There is a lot of trial and error as well as quite a bit of frogging. Because this is a triangle shawl the rows get larger every row, different stitch counts every row, so it can be interesting making the ends and middle all work out and not look funky or out of place. This also means having to write out every row. More work and time than a rectangle shawl.


Kim tests for me quite often. She has tested shawls, beanies and blankets for me.

These are her thoughts about this pattern/test:

I really enjoy making Audrey's shawls. Mountain Mist Heathers Shawl is an easy repeat pattern that if you need to, you can make bigger. I repeated rows 33 to 53 and then did the edging, which has a lacy effect. I hope you enjoy making this shawl.



I have just published the pattern on Ravelry. (click on the graphic to go to the pattern).


It's on sale for the next 2 days only (3/27 & 3/28)!

I haven't tried a shawl in worsted weight yet, but it's on my list.

I often use a cotton blend sport weight yarn. It makesa nice drape and a piece that is not too warm.

Sport weight is almost dk weight? I live in Canada and all of my shawls get donated to charities up here, so everyone is looking for something warm lol

I enjoy using a DK yarn for shawls because that lets them flow better. This is a beautiful pattern.

I prefer dk weight for shawls as well, though here in Canada winters are so cold I'm thinking of trying a few in aran weight for a bit more warmth.

I have some Egyption cotton -- 1 hank each of white, black and pink -- perhaps I should use that
