Announcing our latest release

Pattern on Ravelry

Special:  $3.00 (50% off) through January 12th (midnight CST) No coupon required.

 Reminiscent of the light and airy breeze of a moonlit summer evening, this crescent shaped shawl will gently wrap you in lacy luxury.  The soft color accents add a watercolor effect to the top of the knitted-on 10” (25cm) lace border making this a dreamy summer shawl.

The unique construction requires you to cast on only 18 stitches, work from the top down, knit on the lace border, and there are only 44 stitches to bind off.

Originally released in Knit Now summer of 2013, we just retained our pattern rights and have reformatted it.

Stunning String is also offering a promotional price on the yarn kit:

We are thrilled to release Mainsail, the third shawl in our Salt in the Air eBook.

On a recent trip to the coast, I watched as a sailboat caught the wind and skimmed across the water. Its billowing sail was breathtaking in its simplicity and clean lines. It inspired me to design something reflective of the elegance and ease it embodied.

The minimalism of this design makes it versatile for many types of yarns and color combinations. The triangle shape makes it a stress-free knit and an elegant, versatile addition to any wardrobe.

This is the third in our Salt in the Air shawl series eBook. The shawl is worked mainly in stockinette stitch with some garter stitch accents.

Directions are fully written and charted.

NOTE: Our friends at Stunning String Studio are offering Kits in Stunning Superwash in your choice of colors for a limited time. Details here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/163504839

Come join us for our Gateway to Fall MKAL starting October 1st.

I am really excited about this design. It is a rectangular shawl done in 2 colors of fingering weight and worked from side to side with the option of adding accent beads and a single button closure. A boldly, striped knit with some lacy details, it is relaxing to knit, but with enough variety to keep you thoroughly entertained.

Plus there is not a huge final clue this time! Actually every clue is about the same number of stitches.

More details are on the Gateway to Fall pattern page and in the Setup Clue!

We have again worked very closely with Stunning String Studio to create “Gateway to Fall” yarn kits in our favorite color combinations.

They are slightly different this time. The Full Kit with beads and button are all done with the new colorway Charcoal as the contrast color and you can pick your main color.

If you don’t want to use Charcoal, you can pick both your colors in the Yarn Only Kit.

You can find them both here. Kits will begin shipping mid-September according to Stunning String.

Plus, purchase by September 9th and get discounted Early Bird Pricing!

So come join us in our Ravelry Group, we’re having a blast!

First was Diffraction, a rectangular shawl with unique construction from the inside working out using Judy’s Magic Cast On.

I can’t wait to make this up in some variegated and slow color changing yarns. It is such an easy pattern that it’s perfect for travel and TV knitting.

Next up was our new Sonar Shawl.  Knit top down in a semi-circular shape with the graduating stripes, it is a striking shawl that is very cozy and easy to wear.
