Warm, earthy greens and browns embrace your spirit as you wrap yourself with this Into the Woods shawl. Knit in 100% Merino wool, this unique, Aran-lace knit design of cables, crisp autumn leaves, and friendly owls in the forest, create a feeling of comfort; of being one with earth. As if Mother Nature herself were out for a stroll.
I’m pleased with how my new design came out. I have a few tweaks I want to make to the pattern before it’s ready for others to knit, but I still think this came out very pretty. I love how the owls are subtle and don’t take over the shawl design. I also love the feathery border. For the next one, I want to add another few more rows of the smocking stitch and increase stitches in between the owls, at the cables row but for now, this one is finished. I’m ready to move on to another color yarn. I will try this in a white fingering weight yarn next for a Snowy Owls shawl.
