Shanel Wu (otherwise known as PiperNell) has designed a shawl just for Toad Hollow called the Roulotte Shawl. (Roulotte is french for caravan)
We sent her four skeins of yarn, told her we wanted a "beast" of a shawl, and something with a Boho feel. Then we sat back and watched her work her magic. The result is GORGEOUS! And big .... very big:) It has a garter section, a lace section, and some mosaic sections. What it doesn't have is any purl stitches. :)
For the bind off, you have a choice of tassels, regular picot bind off, or macrame (all instructions are included in the pattern.) Or you might want to do all three. It's your shawl to do with as you wish.
Shanel designed the shawl using our Boho series of yarn - purples, yellows, greens & pinks. Very bright, very spirited. However, we realize that you might prefer slightly more muted tones, or maybe darker ones. So, we've put together several kits for you to choose. Pick the one that speaks to YOUR heart. Use the pull down menu to pick your choice and then, go forth and knit!
