Free Pattern Friday -Textured Shawl, Nimbus January 6, 2012 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays

Free patterns this Friday include two customer favourites – the Textured Shawl by Orlane and the Nimbus sweater by the Berroco Design Team.

Both of these patterns have been knit up as store samples. We knit the Textured Shawl using the luxurious Cascade Eco Duo (70% undyed Baby Alpaca, 30% undyed Merino) but other popular yarn choices are Garnstudio Drops Alpaca, Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, and Berroco Ultra Alpaca.  Orlane provides a “recipe” for this shawl but to make things a little easier for our customers we’ve written up a more structured pattern in two sizes – available in store.  The Nimbus pattern calls for Berroco Peruvia Quick (all colours currently in stock) and is a very quick and easy knit. This classic sweater style seems to be universally flattering on most figure types.  If you have doubts, come in and try it on – you may be surprised!
