wheaten

 This lovely pattern is by Anne Hanson for Brooklyntweed's Wool People, Ravelry link here. I made the scarf size, but I went up a needle size, as I think my yarn was a bit thicker. I also added an extra repeat for a longer scarf.

Are you in the mood for something fun, easy and brightly coloured? Pollination is an easy scarf, suitable for beginner chart readers. Pictured in Hedgehog Fibres Merino Aran yarn, colourway Pollen. As always, a free pattern! You can get your copy from the shop here, or on Ravelry here.

handspun morticia shawl

It came out just smashing. I had reservations about the yarn, I thought it might be a bit too stripy, but I love it! I believe I went up a needle size to make the shawl very open. The pattern is Morticia by Boo Knits. I didn't do any beading, as I am a wuss.

The yarn is my handspun single. My description of fulling singles to make them more stable can be found here.
