Ojo De Dios Chunky- KAL and giveaway!

Ojo De Dios Chunky using Gina Chunky by Plymouth Yarn

I am pleased to announce the release of my new shawl knitting pattern, Ojo De Dios Chunky. Plymouth Gina Chunky self stripes into modular-motif triangles. The seamless triangles form the border of the shawl. A v-shaped garter stitch body is picked up and knit afterward. Some of you may know of my original, “little sister” shawl, which is the original Ojo De Dios knit in Plymouth Gina (a worsted weight).  I really enjoyed re-designing this shawl concept. Since this is knit in a chunky weight,  you’ll be able to knit at a faster pace. I think it took me 3 evenings.

The design is part of a collection of 5 accessories that feature motifs in Interweave Knit’s newest e-book. Designs are from Grace Akhrem, Quenna Lee, Paula B. Levy and Daniela Nii. Just click the link to purchase your copy. You can also purchase a kit for the shawl from Interweave.

Now that I’ve introduced you to the new design……I want to announce I will be hosting a KAL (knit-a-long) and giveaway for my shawl on ravelry in the Plymouth Yarn Group.
