I’ve got several new pattern releases to share with you for December - a few now and a couple others coming closer to the end of the month. Follow any of the links to find the Ravelry pattern page, where these patterns are available for download as a PDF.
First up is Summer End. This is a unisex pullover with just a bit of colorwork. It’s shown here in Rauma Finullgarn, but it can be knit with any fingering-weight yarn of your choosing. This is a great project if you are new to stranded knitting as it uses limited colors and no steeking necessary!
The next release is the Gorse shawl - the next installment in the Ogham pattern collection. This is a 2-skein project, worked in Nimue Sock and shown here in the Buttercup colorway. This long rectangular stole is knit from one short edge to the other, and features two lace patterns representing the thorny tips of the gorse branches, as well as the drooping yellow flower clusters of the plant.
Last but not least is the Calaveras shawl from designer Lori Law. This elongated triangular shawl with an interesting construction and beaded detail uses one skein of Nimue Sock. It is shown here in the colorway Spiced Apple, and was the kick-off pattern for the Celtic Year Shawl Club for the Samhain Festival.
