Leventry Shawl

| Sunday, May 17, 2015
 
Hello Readers! Today I am trilled to share a knit designer with you that I am head over heals for.  I went browsing on Ravelry, as we all do, and found a new favorite designer.  She is very well accomplished in pattern writing and has several patterns that you can choose to queue up.  It was hard to not want to knit them all.  May I introduce to you our featured designer and her spotlight pattern The Leventry Shawl.
 
 
 
 
"I’ve known how to knit since I was about 7 years old, when my aunt first put straight needles and some orange acrylic yarn in my hands. I stuck to knitting and purling for years until I was in grad school and living about a block away from a yarn store. It was then that I truly became obsessed, and I haven’t put my needles down since.
In February 2008, I took a learn to spin class at my local fiber festival and soon found myself hooked on another hobby. A Lendrum folding wheel came to live with me shortly thereafter, and a Hansen miniSpinner joined the family in spring 2011."
 
All of her fantastic patterns can be purchased right from Ravelry here.
 
 

Leventry Shawl

 

 
Leventry is a sophisticated shawl worked in two colors of fingering weight yarn. Starting with a garter tab, the shawl is worked from the top down and begins with two-color stripes that combine the textures of stockinette and garter stitch. The lower portion is highlighted by a band of geometric lace, and the border is finished with an additional stripe of color and a lacy picot bind off.
Roughly 400-420 yds./366-384 m of each color is needed for this shawl. The sample used less than one skein of each color of the recommended yarn.
 

 
 
I am currently enjoying knitting this pattern and find it so hard to put down because it is more exciting every row as it builds.  No matter if you are a written direction knitter or a chart knitter, you will find great ease in how Sarah has written her pattern.  Everything is clearly marked and given in great detail as to what you need to do. 
 
Sarah uses such elegance and simplicity in this shawl pattern it really leaves you wide open for how you want yours to turn out.  You could go with very soft and blended tones to give a sweet look or pack a bold statement like I am doing by knitting mine with an accenting color of Hot Pink. 
(Really...does that surprise anyone!)
 
Here is a sneak peek at my progress so far.
 
 
Sarah has such great talent in her designs I am sure you will all find one that you want to knit.  Her depth of design variety stretches from shawls to mittens and socks. 
 
If you are interested in staying current on any and all of her new pattern releases, I would like to invite you to take a look at her Group on Ravelry.  She does a great job of keeping her knitting fans in the loop with her designs.
 
She also keeps a great detailed blog as well for those of you who like that medium.

Thank you again Sarah for sharing your stunning pattern!
