I love this pattern! Riin picked the colors and I designed this striped asymmetrical shawl with a deep edging of beehive lace and a simple crochet edge to highlight the new DK Merino yarn base offered by Happy Fuzzy Yarn.
Some patterns fight back in the design process and require a lot of ripping back, swatching, swearing, and finger-crossing. This one was smooth, joyful, easy, and sprang pretty much full-formed without fuss.
If you are the kind of person who loves a big cuddly shawl or scarf, Spring Valley will make you happy too. Happy to knit, happy to wear.
I can’t wait to see what other people do with this pattern — other color combinations, perhaps other weights of yarns. If you are a clever sort of knitter, it would be no big deal to knit this in any weight of yarn so long as you set yourself up with the correct stitch multiple for the lace.
