The Sun Glitter shawl pattern was released last week and I am thrilled so see so many cast-ons already! I am loving seeing all of the pictures on Facebook, Ravelry and Instagram.
In case you missed the e-mail last week, the Sun Glitter shawl is a 1 skein asymmetrical shawl designed to use 400m or 425m, 100g of 4ply / fingering / sock weight yarn. And the pattern is FREE for the duration of the KAL which runs until 31st August 2019.
Knit on a 3.75mm 80-100cm circular needle, this shawl pattern is a perfect quick summer knit and with the easy-to-memorise pattern it makes for an excellent travel project.
You can download a copy from Ravelry or from the website.
And there is also now a Ravelry Forum thread open for you to join the chat and share your progress pictures!

A free pattern from Carlie Perrins!
"I'm a passionate knitter and new designer. Inspiration abounds in the Pacific Northwest, where I enjoy the outdoors with my young family. I'm a process knitter and strive to create interesting and enjoyable patterns. I love colour and texture and am a sucker for a quick knit".
A Free pattern from Jenessa of Just 1 More Thing Designs
"My family and friends often comment that they love the things I knit but feel like they could never knit something so “complicated.” I’ve set out to change that perception by designing well written and easy to follow patterns that empower knitters to confidently express themselves creatively. My designs explain why I used a particular stitch, not just how to do the stitch, and I encourage knitters to get creative with the yarn they already own and turn my vision into their own unique creations".
