FAQ What colors of yarn would you suggest pairing together for this pattern?
The most striking color combination would be a medium-dark color and a pale/light color or undyed natural white/cream/grey. If choosing two colors here are some ideas Dark Teal and pale blue, Dark purple and light pink, Dark blue and light green, Dark red and pale orange, Hot pink and lilac, etc. The stitch pattern will work best with a strong contrast in shade but a similar hue. So colors that if they were paint would create a pretty shade when mixed together are a good idea. Opoosite/complimentary colors purple/yellow, blue/orange, Red/green; would not work very well.

Easy to follow pattern. Looks squishy and soft.
I loved creating the knitted shawl with cables along one edge. It was an easy-to-follow pattern and a quick knit. I loved it! Will definitely knit this pattern again.
I keep starting this pattern and I enjoy the lace and beads, but I am afraid to go on because I can't see in the pattern where it will change into a shawl, if I keep going. Just wanted to make sure I have the whole pattern. (4 pages including pictures). Waiting for a confirmation.
On my to do after the holidays. Love the look. Thanks so much for the pattern.
So glad I found this pattern on the MD Sheep & Wool Festival page. It's a fun pattern to make and easy to carry so I can knit any time. It makes a really good summer project.
