Me and the talented ladies behind Nice & Knit have been excitedly waiting for today! As soon as I set eyes on the gorgeous skeins of Nice & Knit DK they so kindly sent my way I knew they had to be a shawl. After spending way too much time binge watching Gilmore Girls I was feeling inspired by Lorelai and all her flair & fun personality and the LORELAI shawl was born!
LORELAI SHAWL PATTERN
Can't you just imagine Lorelai strolling past Luke's in her fave jeans & rock n'roll t-shirt, wearing this shawl? I can!
I wanted something filled with color and life. The combination of lace stitches and stockinette play up together to create a textural and graphic effect that suits any color palette that fits your personality! Pastels or brights - doesn't matter! It all works with Lorelai!
When I designed LORELAI I also knew I wanted to host a surprise Gilmore Girls Knit Along at the same time! So we're going to do something different for this KAL! You can choose to knit up LORELAI along with us or any other pattern you feel suits the Gilmore Girls "aesthetic". We just want you knitting!
We also want you to come on over to our lovely landing page where you can stay up to date with all the things Gilmore Girl Knit Along! This is also where you can easily sign up this year & get all the details for theKAL, and buy the LORELAI pattern + Nice & Knit Yarn Kits! You can find it at www.veryshannon.com/ggkal15
