Free Marjorie & New Year’s Resolutions

IMG_0013_medium

The last post on my blog coincides almost perfectly with the moment I started working as a teacher. Although I absolutely love teaching, it has cut into my creative time more than I had ever expected. However, my only new year’s resolution is to make more time for creativity, and by extension to finally go back to blogging.

To start off with, I want to let you all know that my Marjorie Shawl is FREE from now on. New EU VAT rules are going in effect on the 1st of January, and because I only have one pattern that I’m not even actively promoting, I’ve decided that – at least for now – it is not worth figuring out the rules.

Marjorie Shawl

Photography by Craftzone – Thank you for letting me use it!

Marjorie is a shallow shawl that is perfect for that precious single skein of sock yarn. The solid stockinette body beautifully shows off subtle colour variations and the lace edging gives it an airy and pretty touch.

The instructions for the lace edging are both charted and written.

€ 4,00

A note on yardage
If you are using fingering weight yarn, please be aware that you will be cutting it close with only one 100 gram skein. If you can, make sure to have some extra on hand, or use a 4mm/US 6 needle to work the shawl at a slightly smaller gauge.

Pattern includes instructions and calculations to make the shawl smaller or larger depending on the amount of yarn you have.
