Local Yarn Shop Day was scheduled for April 25th, but was postponed to September 12, 2020 due to Coronavirus, but that didn’t stop Bronnie of Casapinka fame to publish her pattern, Breathe and Hope, to aid local yarn shops in selling yarn to keep their businesses going. A purchase of two skeins of at least 400 yards of fingering yarn would get a free copy of Breathe and Hope.
So, I purchased a set of yarns from Trish at Yarn Social in Kansas City, Missouri, and received a download code by email for this fun pattern. While waiting for the yarn to arrive in the mail, I noticed that I had a set of yarns that would look great knitted up as this shawl, so I cast on immediately. (Don’t worry, Trish! I have a plan for the yarns I purchased from you!)
Originally, I had the orange as Color A, but found it somewhat overpowering and switched it to Color B. It made a slight difference and I like this arrangement. My project notes are here.
The bind off was a Casapinka creation and made some cute bobbles. Her instructions in the pattern were clear, but her pattern page also included a link to a video showing how she made them. They were easy to memorize and went much more quickly than traditional bobbles.
