Free Pattern Friday
I've got a weak spot for a good free knitting pattern, so I've decided to feature a few in a weekly post. Although I knit a lot, I've begun to think more about knitting things that are wearable, and Azzu's Shawl by Emma Fassio, knits up into a very versatile wardrobe staple. It's a long lightweight triangular shawl that is easily scrunched up into scarf.
I knit mine with two balls of Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi, a very soft fingering weight yarn with beautiful long color repeats. This shawl could easily be knit up with cotton or linen for summer in a warmer climate, but I wear wool almost year round. It would also look great in a bright solid color.
I love the pop of color this scarf gives my everyday wardrobe, which runs long on dark neutrals like the navy pullover I'm wearing in the photo. I will certainly knit this pattern again.
