Pippi 1

Inspired by Astrid Lindgren's spunky Pippi Longstocking, my new crescent shaped shawl was originally designed for Wooly Wonka Fibers Heroine's Club. As of today it is no longer exclusive, and may be purchased here or on Ravelry

Pippi 3
Two-color Pippi starts with a pretty lace edging, followed by a stitch pattern of leaves and Pippi's famous braids which combine to give the shawl a wavy lower edge. The body is worked in short rows to create the crescent shape.

In other news, the last clue of the clue of the TTL Mystery Shawl 2014 went out on Saturday. Head over the group for a peek at the beautiful finished shawls that participants are posting.  Other happenings in the group include a Name That Shawl Contest for the Mystery Shawl, and since some of us wanted to continue knitting shawls all summer long, we've started a very low-key Summer Shawl KAL. Simply select any of my shawl patterns, let us know which one, and KAL.
