Wrap yourself in mystery with this deep, pine to 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.
Notes on the project
My Into the Woods Owl shawl is a second time knit, as I loved the first one that I knit in this yarn so much that I wanted to make another. And since it disappeared so quickly from the store, I thought another one at the store would be a good decision. I have also perfected the pattern to be exactly what I was envisioning, so it now has the wider, smocking stitch area. There’s just something about Knit Picks Tweed yarn that I love. The yarn is super soft after blocking, and the little bits of fluff make it look so fun. It also has a nice drape for shawls without being too flimsy. I had hoped to have this finished by Earth Day, but didn’t quite make it.
