KYTO Vol. 4: The Mermaid's Garden Shawl is Coming

I've spent the entire day working on the latest knitting pattern in my Knit Your Tail Off series of patterns for Kindle. This is my Mermaid's Garden Shawl which is a beautiful, very fine lace shawl that consists of three lace patterns. The center is knit in a long rectangle and then I picked up around the edges and knit the border in-the-round. It is knit from Knit Pick's Gloss which is  blend of merino wool and silk. It is lovely to work with. 



The shawl takes four skeins of Gloss or any other laceweight fiber. It's a wonderful project for Spring and Summer, too.

 This is the new cover. I have been procrastinating with this because the three patterns are charted on paper but I need to chart them in CorelDraw and that takes time. They are fairly complicated patterns but once you learn them they go fast.




These are the covers in the series so far. The first three are available through Amazon or at KnitYourTailOff.com. The other two are coming soon!

Thanks for reading.
