Knitted Shawl

I had been looking at this pattern on line for a while and could not decide if I wanted to try it or not. I had some left over yarn and finally made the decision to plunge into it. You can find the pattern by going to Google and searching for Traveling Woman Shawl. There is also a free spread sheet to download and print. Boy! That spread sheet is wonderful--you check off the rows as you finish and you know if you have the correct number of stitches. This is not a difficult pattern, you just have to be sure to keep the correct number of stitch. This thread was too soft and did not hold the points when I blocked it. You will see this pattern done in some wonderful yarn. Good luck if you decide to try it. I had my friend, Naydine, to model it a couple of different ways. The view below can be moved off the shoulders and be more of a cowl.

  1. It's a lovely shawl. :) I will have to add it to the list of things I would like to make. Why is it that we just don't have enough time in the day to make all the things we would like to make. :)

  2. Your shawl is gorgeous!!! And what a sweet friend to model it for you. I would love to add that to my to-do list. Thanks so much for sharing. Your table looks so pretty decorated for Christmas. Love & blessings from NC!

  3. Hey, it's me again! Marie, email me at and tell me where you live in the triad, because you and I may live real near each other. I just realized that it is snowing on your blog. That is so cute! Love & blessings from NC!

  4. Marie,
    You've done such a beautiful job with your Christmas decorating! The shawl is absolutely beautiful as well.
