knit down to christmas - week 6

The Saroyan Shawl

This week's KDTC project is a warm beautiful shawl! The Saroyan Shawl is perfect for a first time lace knitter and has a lovely leaf border. This is a really unique project and was designed to be flexible so you can make the shape fit your style! We knit our sample in Noro Ito color 8. This pattern works with almost any yearn, but we recommend a Worsted weight yarn, so check out the project page or click "View All" under the Knit Down To Christmas Supplies on the right to see your options!
