I’m so excited to introduce you to our first one skein wonder!
The Trip to Pirate’s Cove is an asymmetrical shawl that caters to that one-off busy skein that sits in our stashes waiting for a project that will do well with their variegation. We all know we pick these hand dyed beauties up, being captivated by how stunning they are, but are always stuck with the task of finding a pattern that will work well with the yarn.
Since there’s no purling involved in this project, I found this worked up incredibly quickly.
Worked flat, The Trip to Pirate’s Cove consists of both written directions and charts and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.
The Trip to Pirate’s Cove is named after a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers song of the same name from their Mojo album. It’s Curt’s all-time favorite band, so he is thrilled about the pattern name. ♥
