Well this is it, the end of summer is upon us. Not that it was much of a summer here in St. John’s…well hopefully the fall will prove a little more lovely, as it often does in Newfoundland.
So for the last Summer Featured Pattern for the shop I have chosen Stephen West’s Boneyard Shawl. A fairly quick knit and it only used one skein of Malabrigo Sock. Though, one of the things I love about shawls is the fact that you can easily substitute a heavier or lighter weight yarn and pretty much just change your needles to match.
For my Boneyard, I substituted yarn overs for all the make ones, simply because I liked the look better. And for the edging, I followed Plain Jane’s project modifications. I love how mine turned out…simple, light yet cozy, and the Aguas colourway in the Malabrigo Sock is just beautiful. This will be the perfect fall weather scarf for that little bit of extra warmth under your jacket.
Like I said, you can use pretty much whatever you want for a pattern like this, but I think it looks particularly good done out of one of the luxury sock yarns (think Malabrigo, Tanis Fiber Arts, Fleece Artist). And the best part…you only need one skein! So feel free to stop by the shop if you need some pointers in choosing a yarn/needle combo when doing modifications. If you need yarn for the project, just be sure to mention it’s for the Boneyard, and receive 15% off right up until Sept 21st!
