Getting Ready for Fall: 2 new patterns!

How about “Getting Ready for Fall” with a lacy shawl that seats on shoulders and also can be dressed as a kerchief scarf and a comfy cardian/jacket/sweater/coat that wraps?

Two new patterns for the upcoming season: Chalisa Shawl and Raaga Belted Wrao Cardigan!


Chalisa is a versatile accessory that can be dressed as a shawl or as a kerchief scarf.

Chalisa Shawl is worked top-down and back and forth over three sections (one triangle, one center panel and one triangle) with five charts of lace patterning. Both triangles are equal, so the same chart is worked at both triangles.

Stitch instructions are both charted and written to make your knitting experience more relaxing and pleasant. Stitch counts are available to keep on track.

A few more details about Chalisa:


  • Baby Merino Lace from Abuelita Yarns (100% merino ” 420 yds / 384 m 100gr ” 3.5oz) color Aunt Purple 1670 (2 skeins)
  • One 32 (or longer) circular needle in size US 4 / 3.5mm or size needed to obtain gauge.


24 stitches & 30 rows in 4 in lace pattern from Chart 2 after blocking


  • 65 inches by 25 inches *** measurements after blocking

This cardigan is an easygoing and versatile fall garment.
You can dress it with woolly slacks for a preppy look but it will also look perfect with your favorite pair of jeans & t-shirt.
Belted or not, there are many possibilities for this cardigan that enhances the female bodies and gives comfort.

The cardigan is worked top-down and fits with 0 (when belted) to +1 ease (when loosely belted or open).
A video showing raglan increases is available.
The central back part of the belt is worked along the piece. The bands are worked later, picking up stitches from the back part of the belt on each side.
The 3 stitches at the beginning and at the end of each row, worked as the directions, will create an I-cord finishing along the front sides.

A few more details about Raaga:


  • Shelter Brooklyn Tweed (100% American Wool 50g / 140 yards) color Woodsmoke 11 (11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18) skeins

  • One set US 7 / 4.5mm (or size to obtain gauge) of DPNs for sleeves (or longer circular if you(tm)re working with Magic Loop Method)
