I don't usually talk about my new projects until they are started, because I tend to be indecisive about what pattern to use. Sometimes a new pattern would catch my eye at the last moment and I'd change the plan right before casting on, or even after. On Sunday I posted a link of Wingspan on Facebook, asking if my knitting friends would like to join me for a knitalong. Eight people raised their hands, a few more than I anticipated. Couple hours later I started Wingspan Knitalong group on Ravelry and invited my friends to join. Four days later we have over 100 members in the group, including the pattern designer Maylin of Tri'Coterie Designs, who has been answering questions about the pattern.
Wingspan is a simple small shawl knitted all in garter stitch, with short row shaping. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. People have knitted it in different weights of yarns, with huge variations for the design, even couple of crochet versions.
I'm going to use this Kauni for my Wingspan. The long color repeats would look very pretty in this design.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog and leave me a comment!
