I recently finished designer Jennifer Shiels Toland‘s KAL (knit-along) for her Bubbly Brioche shawl. This was a 5-week knit-along where each Thursday she released a section of her pattern to her participants with pattern prizes at the end of that week. At the end, one the finished shawls received the grand prize, $75 to spend on Plucky Knitter yarn!
Here’s what Jen’s shawl looks like in shape (photo is hers) since I didn’t get one showing my entire shawl.
I used Dream in Color Jilly Cashmere from my stash made of 70% Merino, 20% Cashmere goat, 10% Nylon. Colors Whetstone and Velvet Port. I received this yarn from Veronica of Dream in Color and have been holding them for a special project.
I love how mine turned out! The cashmere in this yarn is amazing!
Can you see the champagne glass and bubbles in the pattern?
I loved the way this design starts off with a few stitches, grows to a nice width, then tapers off to a bind-off of only a few stitches. The KAL was so much fun seeing how others turned out with so many pretty colors!
And guess who won the $75 Plucky Knitter prize! Yours truly! Deciding on what to choose will be difficult because they have such a wonderful range of fibers and colors, but it’ll be fun!
