My first shawl pattern! Another little milestone, and another step in my ongoing mission to put fair isle on everything.
I’m so pleased with how cute this came out! This is a bit smaller than a standard shawl, more of a shawlette, and is great as a wrap, or folded as a scarf. As of now, it’s a bit too hot (tropical almost??) in the UK for wearing such a thing, but I figure if you cast on now it’ll be ready just in time for the first Autumn breezes to hit.
As always, my patterns are available for sale on Ravelry, and you can buy Pipsqueak by hitting this button right here:
