Dandelion Stitch Sampler Shawl

I kinda forgot about this .... but it is so much fun to knit, that it's worth remembering!

Dandelion is a crescent shaped shawl made up of ten different stitch patterns embedded in a background of soothing stocking stitch, worked from the top down. You may not have encountered all these stitch patterns before, but they ARE fun to knit. I get bored easily, so I really enjoyed working each of the stitch patterns once only, and then moving on to the next one. Each stitch pattern is fully explained and the directions are completely written. There are some charts where they are useful, but you don't need to read a chart to complete this shawl.

I love the yarn - Madelinetosh Dandelion in Lepiodoptra and Forestry. The jewel like colours positively glow and complement each other well. Any solid, or semi-solid 4 ply / fingering weight yarn will work, and you will need about 210 and 230 metres (230 and 252 yards) of each colour.
It's available in my Ravelry store .... here.
