Gingko Shawl

Pattern & photo by Jodie Gordon Lucas
This is what I've been working on lately.    I found the pattern through Ravelry.  If you already have a Ravelry account then this link will take you right to the page. If you don't have an account, then you might get stopped at the front door of the site.   It's a fabulous site and if you're a knitter or crocheter, I encourage you to join.  The pattern library alone is invaluable.

The shawl is worked in short rows from the neck to the hem, with an easy pattern repeat - lots of rows, but in three major parts, repeated over and over.  

I'm making the version in the pic out of a raw silk yarn of mine - Stella, 1300 yds - that I've dyed myself in similar colors.   

It's a restful knit and a beautiful project perfect for winter. 

What winter projects do you have lined up?

  1. Hi Robin, love the shawl. At the moment I'm working on a hooked pillow top, a knit cowl from "Purl", and I'm finishing another pillow that I hooked a top for. I get really busy with crafty things in the winter! Would love to learn to weave but it seems so complicated. I did get a booklet on a woven rag rug that looks like fun, maybe I'll try that after Christmas! Enjoy your site a lot. Merry Christmas!
