UPDATED!* Patterns have been chosen! Let's get to work! If you are a prolific knitter and would like to make more than one shawl you are welcome to! Also, feel free to invite your friends ( I will share this with the Polycrafters as well)
Here is the idea. You knit a shawl based on one of the three patterns chosen (I know I said 2 before, but I liked 3 of the suggestions) with any nice quality yarn and bring to exchange at the meetup.
How they are exchanged is TBD (white elephant most likely)- No wrapping is required. Please bring yarn care tags & instructions
Cost: Pattern & Yarn should be approximately $30
Pattern 1-Hitchhiker by Martina Behm- Pattern is ~$4 on Ravelry
(is a very easy knit and easy to add your own flair to)
Pattern 2- Summerflies by Donna Griffin- Pattern is ~$1.85 on Ravelry.
(looks like a great summer shawl)
Pattern 3- Bitterroot by Rosemary (Romi) Hill- Pattern is free on Ravelry
(looks like the most complicated of the 3)
