TERESA SHAWL

Hi friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I last posted here! I miss this! I miss sharing my projects with you, but LIFE! Oh well!

Anyway, I have a new pattern that I want to talk to you about. This new pattern is a collaboration with my good friend, Teresa from Fuzzy What Knots! If you’ve been following me here or on Instagram, then you know this isn’t my first collaboration with her. I am so happy to tell you that this is our third time working together and I’m pretty sure there will be more to come (crossing fingers!) Our first project together was Waves to the Point Shawl and the second was Flowers in the Valley Shawl.

Waves to the Point Shawl

Flowers in the Valley Shawl

This third collaboration with Teresa is a bit different in a way because it took me months to complete my sample. Life has been a little harder this time, especially with our growing baby who just turned one-year-old last month. Well, I’m still grateful that I was able to finish this project!

So, to cut a long story short, let me introduce to you my newest shawl pattern, the Teresa Shawl! As the name implies, I named it after my friend! Yes, I must admit, it is hard to think of pattern names! Since I’ve been working with Teresa for quite a while now, why not name it after her, right? This is to honor her for our friendship and partnership which is dear to me! I hope that I made her happy with this gesture!

The Teresa Shawl is made from a fingering weight yarn that Teresa hand-dyed herself. There are five sets that Teresa curated as kits for this shawl pattern. Grab your kits from Fuzzy What Knots shop. Kits are 20% off, valid until August 21st, no code is needed. See these five gorgeous sets below. I used kit 1 for my shawl.

These sets are just beautiful, so soft to the touch, and easy to work with!

The stitch pattern for this shawl creates a beautiful texture that is reversible but has different designs on each side. This pattern has two rows repeat which can be easily memorized once you get comfortable with it.

We have included two options for the border and edging pattern. One is the pompom stitch edging and the other option is the fringe. Both borders require a bit of time to work on but both give a great-looking finishing touch!

NOTES

  1. Read the pattern carefully before starting.
  2. The beginning ch 3 counts as 1 DC, while ch 1 does not count as a st.
  3. Stitch markers are optional but recommended. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the row and move as work progresses.
  4. Asterisks * indicate pattern repeats. You need to repeat instructions between asterisks as many times as directed or repeat at specified locations.
  5. Parentheses ( ) are used to work instructions within parentheses as many times as directed or work a group of stitches all in the same stitch or space.
