I have a new shawl design and I’m looking for test knitters! This is my Roxanne shawl, a rectangular lace shawl with a knitted on border. Roxanne is a shawl that celebrates life and growth. Vining flowers and heart shaped leaf motifs combine with a deeply scalloped knitted on border to create a classic lace shawl which expresses both love and hope. It was designed in honor of my midwife, Roxanne, who was with me for the birth of all three of my children.
This pattern begins with knitting a long, rectangular lace panel. Stitches are picked up all around this rectangle and a knitted on border is added perpendicular to the existing stitches. Both written and charted directions are given and the knitter may switch between them.
If you are interested in joining the test knit, visit my Ravelry group and look at the call for testers for this shawl. As a thank you, I’ll send all the testers who finish by the deadline a copy of the pattern for their Ravelry library and a coupon for one additional self published pattern of mine.
