Happy Friday and let’s make with the freebie.
I have a new pattern. And when I have a new pattern… you have a new pattern! That’s because my readers always get a chance at a free download. Them’s the rules.
I do hope you like it.
Being Parallel – a knitsbyjenn pattern
So head on over to the ravelry pattern page…
- add it to your favorites (because every click there helps me out)
- choose the “buy it now” option
- and apply this coupon code: parallel-lines
The code is good until midnight (CST) on Dec 20, 2015. That is a bit longer than I normally let these promotions run but… its the holidays and things are crazy. I thought I add on some time to this one.
Being Parallel is a shawl and I have to say, I kind of love it. I love the fabric, the texture, in this pattern. I love the gentle curve along the upper edge because that keeps it on my shoulders. Most of all I like the easy-peasy color work.
Slip stitch color work, like the kind employed in this design, is so much easier than stranded knitting. After all, you only have to knit with one color at a time. And unlike stranded knitting, slip stitch work can lend some interesting texture too. So I combined those two things, color work and texture, and got a result that I really liked.
To make this shawl you are going to need two colors in fingering weight. For Color A, the main color, you will need about 700 yards. For Color B you’ll need about 400 yards. I used Noti Yarn, an Austin based hand dyer that is just getting started, to make mine. Use any two colors that show well together and you’ll be set for a great shawl.

Thank you Jenn for the new pattern. I love seeing the final product after all the little hints that have been in the photos for the past few months.
You are most welcome!
I’ve read in more than one place that a designer should never, ever show their work in public before it is ready for purchase. And you can probably guess how I feel about that. I like to write about what I’m working on. I’ve thought that my readers like that too so its nice to get the positive reinforcement.
Beautiful shawl! Thanks for sharing the pattern. Where can you purchase Noti Yarn?
If you’re interested in Noti yarn, I’d keep an eye on that website (linked in teh post above). Its not ready yet but I believe that will be her primary sale outlet.
Saw the shawl in person and it is truly beautiful. Went to Noti yarns as well and the yarns are yummy.
Those are nice colors. I’m sure Noti yarns will be a big hit! And thanks for the support.
Love your blog and love this new parrern. Thank you so much for sharing so much with us. Have a Very Merry Christmas!
You are very welcome. And a big MERRY CHRISTMAS to you too!
Love it! Thanks for sharing this pattern. Happy Holidays to you and your felines :D)
You are very welcome. I’m sure you will make something beautiful with the pattern. You always do. (I follow her on Goggle+ btw)
As for those dratted felines, everyday is their holiday. Have I ever told you that they get TWO dinners every night?
