May Knit-Along! May 1, 2013 – Posted in: Knit-Alongs, Project Ideas, Store Samples

Augustine Shawlette

Our May Knit-Along project is the Augustine Shawlette by Valdis Vrang. Lisa finished up our bright and cheerful store sample back in March and it has since become a runaway favourite with customers wanting a lighter weight accessory for spring and summer layering. The sample is knit with Silver Label from Tanis Fiber Arts (100% Mulberry Silk) but we have no shortage of beautiful yarn options for this pattern at a variety of price points in store. While TFA Silver Label and Handmaiden Sea Silk have a beautiful luster, the cool sheen of our Mandarin Petit from Sandnes Garn (100% fingering weight cotton) would also make a great choice.  The pattern itself is well-written and easy to follow!

The Augustine Shawlette can be purchased for $3.50 through Ravelry.

The Knit-Along begins today, May 1st. To join, simply click here to visit the May KAL thread in the Espace Tricot Ravelry Group and introduce yourself.
