The Henny Shawl

IMG_1634 copy.JPG

Introducing the Henny Shawl, the sister pattern to the Henny Hat. It's a simple triangle shawl that can be draped over your shoulders or wrapped around your neck. Just like the hat, it is knit with a worsted weight and features an all-over lace pattern. More details can be found on Ravelry.

This shawl is part of a small collection of knits inspired by the women who came before me. My Grandmother crochets a lot and has told me stories of how her mother was an avid knitter and would often be found with needles in her hands. The design has the simplicity and practicality a country girl needs but with a bit of feminine flair. I never met her, but I can imagine this was the kind of woman my Great Grandmother was. This simple triangular shawl is versatile and can be worn many different ways, such as traditionally draped over your shoulders or kerchief style for plenty of warmth around your neck. The repeat pattern is easy to learn and memorize and great for lace beginners. This pattern includes both charted and written directions. There is also a matching hat pattern, called the Henny Hat. The worsted weight makes it a fairly quick knit and provides enough warmth for chilly days.  

I'm offering the pattern for free until tomorrow (March 5th) at 9am! After that, it'll be $3 (or $2 if purchased with the Henny Hat, discount qualifies even if you've already purchased the latter previously.) 

If you knit the Henny Hat or Shawl, I hope you'll join in the Henny KAL! I'm offering a skein of BV yarn to one lucky participant.
