A few weeks before Christmas I was able to test knit a pattern for caitlin ffrench…an AMAZING knitwear designer and blogger.  Her blog is amazing…go check it out…I’ll wait here.

She is well known…and seen…on Ravelry, and I was thrilled to have the chance at knitting one of her patterns early!

Cold Pine is a worsted weight shawl/kerchief.  I knit this using Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in Steamer Trunk.  This was my first time using this yarn base, and it will definitely not be my last!

I think that my favorite part of knitting this pattern was watching the design develop.  I love the undulating curves of the design.  It is unlike anything that I’ve ever knit before…and it was so captivating!

This shawl is a bit on the small side but would be amazing if it was knit on larger needles with perhaps an Aran or Bulky weight!  Gorgeous!

I loved testing Cold Pine for ffrench…and I would jump at the chance again. Lovely pattern, and lovely lady.
