I guess there’s just enough chill in the air that I’m thinking about shawls and scarves, and if you wan ta new one for the fall it’s time to cast on, even if it’s still warm where you live (or for the spring, if it’s still cool where you live).
I am loving the Amasei Shawl from Olga Buraya-Kefelian, which is a pretty, large project with a simple lacy pattern. The sample version is worked with linen and wool yarns held together, but if you live in one of those rare places where it is always warm or need a new accessory for summer, you can knit it just with the linen.
Either way it’s lovely, and you should click through to see all the different ways you can wear it: as a giant scarf, a wrap, an impromptu cardigan. So cute!
