Fresh Off Our Needles: The Fox Wedding Shawl

The Fox Wedding Shawl from designer Sylvia McFadden made our hearts skip a beat the moment we laid eyes on it. It's a simple shawl, comprised of cascading rows of dropped stitches with increasing rows of garter ridges in between. It really is the very definition of a "peaceful knit." Just cast on, work a few rows every evening, and enjoy each and every squishy, bouncy stitch - this one ended up being a very quick, very enjoyable knit. Our sample is worked using three skeins of Elsebeth Lavold, Luscious Llama in color #10, Wine Red. We're already dreaming about which color we'd pick for our next one!
