One of our favorite pattern designers, Casapinka, has just released a new pattern for LYS Day. This lovely shawl is called the Ric Rac shawl. It takes two skeins of fingering weight yarn and is perfect for our cool summer evenings. The pattern will be FREE this Saturday only with the purchase of TWO skeins of fingering weight yarn. Mia has made one for the shop and it is just stunning. Hope you can come and see it on Saturday.
