In case this isn’t incredibly obvious by now, I love knitting shawls. I’m obsessed with playing with the geometry possibilities, the outfit possibilities, and the chance to show off some beautiful yarn on the canvas that is a big, flat piece of knitting. This new shawl pattern began as a wee experiment with making a shawl featuring increases along one side of the work every few rows, which forms a right triangle. I love the fact that the yarn over increases are hidden in this piece’s chain edge and the wide, diagonal ribs are formed by simply alternating groups of 6 knit and purl stitches, hence the name Sixth Degree Shawl. I hope you enjoy knitting this as much as I did!
My newest pattern is now available, and it’s all about keeping your hands warm to make them feel good! Learn how to get your hands on it, and enter to win 6 mini skeins of Feel Good Yarn Company’s SilverSpun Sport and a drawstring project bag!

Eucalan is a fiber wash originally designed for woolens. The founder of Eucalan, Mary Ellen Edgar, invented Eucalan after discovering a no rinse laundry product in Australia. Living in the country necessitated being conscious of water consumption, so a no rinse laundry solution was perfect for her home.
