Garter Love!

I just finished a new shawl!

It's the Multnomah shawl:

Garter Love Shawl

Stats:
Pattern: Multnomah by Kate Flagg
Yarn: fingering weight Louet base dyed by Sarah and I!
Needles: Size US 6
Mods: none

This is a awesome mindless knit - especially the garter stitch part because there's absolutely no purling! You don't really have to look at what you're doing until you reach the feather and fan section.

This was such a quick and easy knit - I may have to knit another one!

Gorgeous Multnomah! I have one, but it's in hibernation now. Tell me, did you find it to be a small shawl? Also - how many yards did you have to knit it? I'm afraid to run out of yarn from the one I started. I see you knit it to pattern without any mods...

Yours is lovely!

I saw your shawl on ravelry. I've been toying with the idea of making one for along time..Maybe just the inspiration I need.

This shawl has been on my "to-knit" list for a while. Yours is absolutely gorgeous! The colors are so vibrant!

Love it! I knit one of these too this summer. But I haven't taken any pictures yet. I really like the yarn that you used.

Love your scarf! Multonomah is one of my favorite patterns. It's a great scarf for gifting since you can knit one up practically at the last minute. Beautiful color too.

This is so pretty. I really want to knit a shawl. This looks like the perfect pattern to. I also love the yarn colors. :)

So pretty! It's on my short list of soon-to-knits.

It's a lovely shawl, and a beautiful yarn too. These triangular shawls never get old!

Beautiful! Well done!
Thank you for the link to this free pattern. I have some KnitPicks variegated DK weight yarn that I purchased from a knitting friend several years ago and it never had a purpose until now.....I think it will knit up into a beautiful Multnomah shawl!

Very pretty -- nicely done! I knit one of these last Fall in Malabrigo Silky wool and love how snuggly it is.

I am knitting that shawl in a green. But I like your's so much better. The color is lovely. Hopefully the weather will be cool enough at the wine festival for you to wear it. It would be perfect!
