Bettye Shawlette & Shawl Knitting Pattern DOWNLOAD


If you’ve ever been to the shop I work at, A Good Yarn Sarasota, you’ve probably been greeted from the knitting table by Bettye Banks. Bettye is a dear customer and has to be the most joyful individual I’ve ever met. If Bettye has ever had a bad day, you wouldnt know it. She put in a request a few weeks back: Cat, why don’t you design me a shawlette? And since many people request small projects to give as gifts, to knit whilst traveling or to use with pricey yarn, I decided to give it a shot. The yarns I used are so beautiful, they don’t require a complicated stitch pattern. You could easily substitute any sport weight or heavy fingering (sock) yarn in this pattern. I’ve recently added a larger Shawl version, using Primrose’s Rose Sport. Both versions are a “1 skein” project, respectively.
