Countdown to the Crawl: Road Warrior

It's almost here! The 7th annual DFW Yarn Crawl begins tomorrow! Here's one more new shawl pattern to tide you over until then.

Inspired by Yarnold, the armadillo mascot of the DFW Yarn Crawl, my Road Warrior shawl pattern is a simple, relaxing knit of garter stitch with occasional slipped stitches and basic increases. It’s also easily customized to whatever yummy yarns may follow you home from your local yarn shop. Just use a needle size suitable for your yarn weight and keep knitting until you run out of yarn.

The sample will be on display for the entire crawl (Aug 17-26) at McKinney Knittery, where you'll also find the Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light used in the sample. So feel free to pop by and check it out if you're in the neighborhood.
