Want a chance to win a shawl pin by JUL Designs? How about Bonnie Bishoff’s Bee Shawl Pin? Perhaps a prize from the Black Mountain Yarn Shop or a custom made MKAL exclusive knitter’s project bag are too tempting to pass by? Well then, come and join the Shawl Pin Shawl MKAL on Ravelry!

Just a glimpse about the pattern: this easy level shawl features Drama by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns and comes in two sizes. The small – 10.5”/ 26.5cm deep by 64”/ 162.5cm wide – requires 2 skeins of yarn. The large – 12.75”/ 32.5cm deep by 74”/ 188cm wide – requires 3 skeins of yarn. The special features of the shawl are a secret, but the design works for both women and men. Suggested prerequisite skills include: knit, purl, increase, short rows (wrap and turn or method of choice), and I-cord. Pattern has been tech edited & test knit.

Still undecided? Check out some of the comments from the secret test knitters:
•I found it to be a very intuitive pattern and thus a relatively easy knit, with concentration needed mainly for the short rows and bind off.
•I quite liked this project. It’s very versatile and can be used as a scarf or a stole 🙂 Perfect for those summer evenings outside that turn into midnight parties 😉

One of my designs won an award at the Ohio State Fair this year. Could your project from this MKAL be the next ribbon winning project?
