• French Cancan
Despite the change in weather, I have high hopes that spring is on the way. It’s time for bold colors and light fabrics, sunshine and flowers! While it’s not quite warm enough for me to start on too much lace or vacation-esque knitting, I do want to start a shawl. Something about sunshine makes me think cozy shawl and evenings by the fire. I was inspired by this:

Rebecca's Angelus

The pattern is Angelus by Emma Galati and this is Rebecca‘s lovely version in SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock. It’s just so fabulous, color combination and all. Just 2 skeins (one in each color) will make up a generous scarf/small shawl.

French Cancan by Mademoiselle C

If you like the braided edging but are looking for something in a single color or in a thicker weight, I also love French Cancan. Pretty details with a healthy dose of garter to keep things simple. This pattern would be perfect in Madelinetosh Merino DK (perhaps in Torchere….), or Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca, something warm to wrap your shoulders on the blustery days!
