Today’s the day, the start of the Balm to the Soul Shawlette KAL! The pattern includes directions for both DK and worsted-weight yarn, taking only 220 yards of worsted or 300 of DK. You begin with a nice stockinette section to get used to the increase pattern, then add a bit of texture, and filnally, finish with one lace repeat.

This is going to be a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see the projects unfold!

Here’s my DK version, worked in Berroco Vintage DK. The worsted lilac shawl above is in local favorite Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mills‘ Mer Maid kettle-dyed yarn.

We’ll have prizes and surprises throughout the KAL, which goes until August 1; here’s the first one now!

A big prize for a lucky finisher: two skeins of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the color Damask, more than enough to complete another shawlette!

Please join us in the KAL for some good ol’ summer fun.
