I know we passed the Autumnal Equinox a few weeks ago but, here in South Florida, the overnight temps finally dropped below 70 degrees F for the first time since May! It’s wonderful to venture outdoors first thing in the morning without feeling sweaty. However, the cooler temps give me goosebumps.
I have an abundance of Paton’s Beehive Baby Sport yarn in Vintage Lace and Baby Grey that I bought on clearance over a year ago. It’s so soft and lightweight that it feels like I’m working with air. I also have nearly 100 shawl and wrap patterns saved on Pinterest, so I decided that I needed to make a little something that would keep my arms warm while I walk the dogs and wait for the sun to appear.
You can find the free pattern for The Dixie Charm Shawl here. Unfortunately, I can’t link to the pattern for the border because I downloaded a diagram from a Russian site and I haven’t been able to find it online again.
My mom volunteered to model the wrap for me today (say “hi, Mom!”) and I’m hoping that I can get it back before summer rolls back around.
If you’ve got a favorite wrap or shawl pattern, let me know in the comments. I may be needing a new one.
