Hand Spun Pink Shawl

Hand Spun Pink Shawl

 Hand spun Dorset fleece, from my girls.

 The pattern is my own, very simple.

Row 1.  Cast on 4 stitches  using 12 mm needles.
Row 2. Knit 2 stitches, Yarn Over Knit to the end of the row.

Continue row 2, this gives an increase every row.
When the V shaped shawl is large enough, cast of loosely.

Hand Spun Bracelets

Hand Spun Bracelets

Seed - stitch Bracelets

This is a good way to use up small bits of hand spun yarn. The pattern is from a book called ( more last minute knitted gifts by Joelle Hoverson .)
These take no time to make and would make a nice gift.
