The Audra shawl pattern I was one of the test knitters for designed by Ambah has now been released and is on sale until the end of the month which is coming up right soon! The pattern is very easy – even the lace – and if made using the yarns called for, is garter stripes alternating mohair and sock yarn which makes for such a lovely, light and airy wrap and then the lace sections. I used Hedgehog yarns, both sock weight and kidsilk haze that were dyed the same color so my stripes are not obvious in the garter section unless you are looking at it in person and then you can see the mohair versus the other yarn. If you look at the other testers’ projects in Ravelry you can see examples where the stripes are more pronounced – I love both looks and I do love the Hedgehog yarns that are dyed to match. Ambah’s designs are fun to knit and very well written. I highly recommend this one.
And that shawl pin – which I have been coveting for quite a while and then a gift card came along so I finally decided to buy it – that is Ambah’s logo for her knit designs. It is a gorgeous shawl pin which I know I will wear a lot.
