Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cables
  • lace

Pattern Description:

I've only been to Olympic National Park once, but there are two things I remember vividly. One was how beautiful the forest was when we walked through, it was so beautifully green that the leaves and everything seemed to almost glow. The second thing I remember was a lake my family and I had decided to try fishing in. The water was such a clear blue-green that you could see down to the bottom of the lake 50 feet out. We didn't catch any fish, but it sure was beautiful.

This shawl is designed to create a knitted forest using cabling and lace. When I thought of this design, I just had to use this beautiful blue-green colorway reminiscent of the waters there.

The Olympic National Park shawl is the fourth in my VBM Shawl Collection 2, which is inspired by U.S. National Parks. 1 dollar from each collection sale will be donated to nationalparks.org. The collection is available for purchase via my blog at http://verybusymonkey.wordpress.com or via Ravlery, only individual patterns will be available on Craftsy.
