Finished object: Holden Shawlette!


Jen recently completed the Holden Shawlette by designer Mindy Wilkes. This pattern (available as a FREE Ravelry download) calls for just one skein of Malabrigo Sock (see our previous post for colors currently in stock), but Jen substituted Ella Rae Lace Merino in color 119 for the Malabrigo and notes that any fingering weight yarn would do. With a stockinette body and an easy to memorize lace pattern, this pattern is perfect for a first lace or shawl project. Stop by the boutique today to try on this shawl and browse our selection of fingering weight yarns!
