The Summer 2014 issue of Pom Pom Quarterly is out so that means it’s time for me to show you my latest pattern. First of all, if you’ve never heard of Pom Pom, you seriously need to go check them out. Listen to their podcast (or Pomcast) while you’re at it.
This is Baya. Baya is a crescent shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The bottom edge of the shawl is a lace pattern that incorporates some simple cables to make a swoopy, leafy edge. The body of the shawl is worked in garter stitch so after all that lace at the bottom, you can just knit away at the top.
Oh, wait a second. It’s the COVER!
What makes Baya just a little bit different is the yarn. The lace edge is worked in SweetGeorgia Cashsilk Lace, and the body is worked in SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock. Two different weights of yarn AND two different colors, although you could use one color in both bases for a monochromatic look.
You can order Pom Pom through their website.
