I've been wanting to make a design that would use up some small amounts of yarn which coordinated well with each other. This shawlette was the outcome. I love shawlettes because they will keep not only my neck but also my shoulder warm. Should we call these "shoulder scarves"? The edging is worked lengthwise and the body of the shawlette is picked up across the top edge.

I am a life long knitter, starting when about 10 years old. I've left the art at times, but returned in earnest about 13 years ago - with the birth of my first and only grandchild. I have a small family, one daughter and one granddaughter - who are "sweatered-out" as I say and aren't really interested in what I can create for them. Nor are they interested in learning how to knit. I've recently fallen in love with designing and am thrilled to offer my patterns for others to use. Enjoy the patterns and feel free to post comments! I love reading them
