I’m delighted to show you all the gorgeous new pattern that I have been working on.
I really wanted to do something to help the people of Christchurch, who are rebuilding their city and lives in the wake of February’s devastating earthquake. So, I designed this scarf, and all proceeds from the sale of this pattern from now until the end of May will go the Red Cross in Christchurch.
I am offering it for sale via Ravelry here.
I will also be releasing a shawl version of the pattern in 4ply, which will be released on 21/4/11. You can buy them separately, or together in an ‘e-book’. My first attempt at trying to put an e-book together, so I’m sitting here with fingers crossed (well, kinda, cos it’s hard to type with crossed fingers…) and hoping it all works.
This pattern can be knit from around 225 yards/205 metres of worsted weight yarn, and uses 5mm needles. It is the perfect use for a special snuggly skein of yarn, and would make a great knit for a gift.
I’ll let you know how the fund-raising goes!
