Test knitting

If you fancy having a go at my next design before it’s published, then you can volunteer yourself as a test knitter. There’s a heads-up on upcoming tests below, so if you want to join in, let me know.

Land mermaid

Like a classic pop song with a great key change, the triangular Land Mermaid shawl starts off simple, but gets a bit jazzy. The stocking stitch centre and contrasting lace panels make it both cosy and a little bit fancy. Perfect for showing off contrasting fingering-weight yarns, it makes a great stashbuster – or a way to show off that special pairing you’ve been saving.

The lace sections of the shawl are fully charted, with instructions for both a smaller and larger shawl. Both sizes are pictured in this pattern; the green shawl is the small size, and the deep red shawl is the large.

The test for the Land Mermaid shawl will be going live soon, so get in touch if you want in.
