VBM Shawl Collection 1 is complete!

Things have been pretty busy so I haven’t had a chance to post on here much, but all four shawls in my first shawl pattern collection are now complete and available. In addition to the Coriolis Shawl and Bernoulli Shawl I previously posted about, the collection also includes the patterns for the Logwood Shawl and the Irish Moss Shawl (photos below). All of the patterns in the collection have been tested, and all come with both written and charted instructions. You can purchase the collection by following the tab at the “shawl patterns” tab at the top. I am really pleased with how all of these patterns turned out, and I hope to put together another collection to be released after the first of the year.

Logwood Shawl
Shown in Madeline Tosh Merino Light, Logwood colorway. Garter-bodied shawl with textured edging worked sideways along the shawl. Worked all in one piece (no seaming!) and very minimal binding off.

Irish Moss Shawl
Shown in Barking Dog Yarns Andromeda, Chive colorway. Firstly, I have to say how WONDERFUL this yarn is. So pretty, so shiny, so soft, and lovely to work with – highly recommend it (and Suzan’s other yarns – you should check out her site BarkingDogYarns.com). This one is worked “top-down” in three sections and finished off with a slight picot edging.

Verybusymonkey Shawl Collection 1

So, I have given in to peer pressure and decided to put together a pattern collection. 🙂 It will feature four original shawl designs that will be released between now and October. If you purchase the collection, you will automatically be sent updates as the new patterns are released (essentially, you’d be “pre-ordering” them).The patterns will also be available for individual purchase as well, but once you buy individuals patterns, you can’t get discounts or anything on the collection later on. The collection will include the Coriolis Shawl (this one is already released – photos in previous post), as well as my Bernoulli shawl (currently in testing – photos below) and two others that will be released over the next couple of months. The patterns will include both written and charted instructions.

You can purchase the collection or the Coriolis shawl individually by clicking on the “Shawl Patterns” tab at the top.

COMING SOON: Coriolis Shawl

Based on the stitch pattern from my Coriolis Effect Socks, here’s a new shawl. It’s a lacy heart-shaped shawl with swirling faux cables that move across the shawl symmetrically. A garter border finishes it off. Shown here in MadelineTosh merino light, colorway is Composition Book Gray. Currently being test-knit. 🙂

NEW PATTERN: Hyde Park Shawl

Named after the serpentine at Hyde Park (thank you to a Ravelry fan for suggesting the name). This is a center-out shawl with a garter body and the lacy edging knit sideways connecting to the body as you go, so it’s knit all in one piece and no seaming! Pattern is now available for purchase – click on the “shawl patterns” tab above. 😀

Mulled Raspberry Shawl

Coming Soon

A center-out, textured shawl created entirely through lace, finished off with a picot edging. The yarn is a lovely raspberry color (technically the colorway is Fig). I am TOTALLY not a pink person but this is not really pink in the typical sense (color in the photo is not entirely accurate). Anyway, it’s currently being test-knit then will be available for sale. I knit mine up in a few days (even with my mis-reading my own chart and having to frog and re-knit bits of it). Too bad it’s going to be 98 degrees today… 🙂

Paralucia Shawl

I’ve been rather busy designing lately, as you can see… Here’s my newest:

Paralucia Shawl

Pattern is based on my malachite butterfly sock pattern, and named after the genus for the Bathurst Copper Butterfly.

Garter stitch body worked from the center out, with increases worked into the patterned border, finished off with a picot edging. Pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the border. Schematic with measurements can be seen in the pattern photos.
