There’s still time left to join our Pick a Shawl KAL over in our Ravelry group – our cast on date is August 15. Choose a shawl pattern and a Knitcircus gradient and post it our thread. Check out the KAL invite at the top of thread and you’ll see the rules for how to be eligible for prize drawings.

I didn’t choose my project until yesterday, so don’t worry, you’re not too late. Here’s my combination:

I’m knitting Tulipa Espiral by Ines Sousa out of our colorway Sea of Tranquility. So dreamy.

If you’re still looking for ideas for shawls, check out the bundle I created on Ravelry here. Also, maybe these beauties will inspire you, too.

That’s the Willowbrook Shawl by Brenda Castiel.

Next we have Nurmilintu by Heidi Alander, knitted by Susannova. I love its little lace inserts highlighted by the gradient’s color changes.

In the same colorway and gradient cake size, check out Haruni by Emily Ross below, as knitted by Aquarivirlib.

Isn’t it amazing to see the same colorway knitted up in different patterns? Both knitters have the peach end of the gradient landing in the lace edging, which is such a gorgeous, soft effect.

I hope you join us and I can’t wait to see what shawl and colorway combination you choose!
