a study in texture and a new charity

hello out there

It’s been a couple of months since I added another knitting primate item. This past weekend I banished my procrastination to the curb and finally finalized my latest pattern, the study in texture shawl. It is a triangular shawl constructed with multiple bands of variously textured stitches. The pattern calls for a lovely soft llama wool; I also recommend using alpaca or merino. The differently textured bands give visual appeal and interest (or at least I hope :]). It also features cable rope edging which lends a unique aspect to the shawl.

Some will be familiar, others maybe a little new but all easy enough to follow after you repeat the stitch pattern once or twice.
