June giveaway - Sea Glass shawl



Here we go, this is for June, ready for those balmy summer evening outside with a glass of wine or three..........
Handknitted in a Rowan yarn, a linen mix, it drapes beautifully and is the colour of washed sea glass. The pattern is based on a traditional feather and fan pattern, found on the net. If you'd like a chance to win, just leave a comment here, or shout out in another post (I read them all), or e-mail me on Julian.Dean1@btinternet.com.
Good luck!

I can't believe that you are giving away something as beautiful as this Sarah, both the colours and the pattern are lovely. You are such a talented knitter.

I don't quite undestand givaways, it is a beauiful shawl and must have taken a long time to knit. Might have a go myself if I can track the pattern down. It would be an ideal evening wrap to pack for visiting New England in the fall which is our retirement present to ourselves:) Kindest regards Oddny

Here's the pattern I based the shawl on - very adaptable, and looks different every time, according to which yarn you use:

It's a fairly easy pattern, but can get a bit weighty. I love knitting, and could never wear or use everything I knit, and am happy to give things away and share them.
