Revisiting a Favorite

As many knitting patterns I buy or design of my own, invariably there are some I return to again and again. That is the case with the Wisteria Arbor Shawl from the One Skein Sock Yarn Wonders book. I have made this out of my own handspun in the past, colored and a natural cream. This time, however, I used something less typical — kitchen cotton.

I do enjoy this pattern because it is an easy repeat to memorize. You begin at the very bottom with one repeat of the chart, then add on every successive layer. It works up fairly fast, and especially with this yarn which was on (US) Size 7 needles.

The cotton is surprisingly warm, good for air conditioned rooms, breezy walks on the beach, and cool summer evenings in the garden!
