Free Pattern Friday
Here's another spotlight on a free knitting pattern I've used. Arcadian Shawl is a free pattern on Ravelry that uses 520 yards of worsted weight yarn. It's a relaxing knit: the stockinette portion is knit at the same time as the simple edging pattern, so it'll keep your interest without testing your concentration too much. I knit my shawl with four balls of Stitch Nation Alpaca Love, a discontinued yarn I picked up at Tuesday Morning. You never know what you'll find there, but they often have some good quality yarns at about half off their retail price. The alpaca makes this shawl especially warm and soft. This pattern is a keeper. I like it's classic, elegant design.
