Introducing the Honey Bees Shawl knitting pattern!
I kettle-dyed this yarn in my small kitchen in N.H. using pumpkin spice tea. It only took a moment to fall head over heels and knew I had to wrap myself up in whatever it became. I imagined a giant cozy shawl, perfect to wear while taking a walk on a cool autumn morning. The large, triangular shape is classic and flattering and can be worn in many ways. It’s worked flat on circular knitting needles. There is a right and a wrong side.
My favorite part about this shawl (besides the color) is definitely the little “bees” swarming about in neat and tidy rows. I really enjoyed getting to know these bees as each one was knit. For me, this was such a process knit as I enjoyed every single stitch and was truly saddened by the project’s end; so much so that I decided to write another pattern, very similar to this one, only it uses fingering weight yarn and has a slightly different shape.
Worsted weight yarn- approximately 660 yards/300 grams
I used my own hand-dyed, 100% SW merino wool in the colorway, “Pumpkin Spice Tea.”
I plan to dye up more of this soon to sell in the shop!
