“Eagle of Pengwern” by Bridgett from Rambling Designs. This is the pattern on sale today, if you haven’t made one of Bridgett’s pattern, you’re missing out! They are gorgeous, the pictures don’t do them justice! (I have test knit for her, so I know!) 🙂



Bridgett writes, “This was the first shawl pattern I ever wrote for sale! It is near and dear to my heart. This shawl has a faroese type shaping and a middle panel. It will envelope you like wings when it is done and will stay wonderfully on your shoulders. You can also wrap it around you, cross it in front and tie the ends of the cloth (the “tips” of the “wings”) behind your back. You could make it bigger if you wanted to, just add repeats in the end.”

Click on the picture to go directly to this patterns page. Regular price $6, on sale today ONLY for $4.80! Even if you don’t knit, this is a great gift for your knitting friend 🙂

So, what about this shawl? It’s made from 100% merino wool, lace wt yarn. It’s super soft and cuddly. It may not look like it has lots of warmth… but it does. The wool is warm and the little holes in the lace trap the warm air and keep it so that you can be warm! I made this shawl during the Summer Squares Suite featured on BadCatDesigns blog this last summer. It’s just about 32″ square.

And here is the pattern that is on sale today….


A beautiful lace shawl from Bridgett at Rambling Designs. Gorgeous!
