Into the Woods Owl shawl

Wrap yourself in mystery with this deep, forest-green, Into the Woods Owl shawl. Knit in a combination of Merino wool, Donegal tweed and just enough nylon to assist in shape-keeping, this forest-themed shawl is a natural choice for the outdoor spirit. The Aran-lace 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.

This is the third Into the Woods shawl that I’ve knit, and I do believe I have the pattern perfected enough to knit one for the store. I’ve tweaked all of the areas I thought I could make better, and am pleased with the outcome. I only wish I was as good at Pattern writing. Poor Jessica is having a time of it, trying to figure out what I mean in the directions I’ve written. I’m beginning to think this is the only shawl pattern I’ll make available to people, it’s been such a chore write. I never quite understood the work involved in writing up patterns before and I’m so much more patient with patterns I don’t quite get, after trying to do one of my own. No more will I complain when something isn’t clear or there’s a typo or what-have-you. Nope. I’m telling you right now, it’s much easier to knit a shawl than it is to write out how you did it, in a clear and understandable way.
