WIP Wednesday: Knit Your Love

This week’s WIP is another Martina Behm pattern called Knit Your Love.  I am not a huge fan of shawls, but the workshop was being offered by my favorite teacher at my LYS, so I signed up for it anyway.  I am going to give it away as a gift once it is finished.

What is great about a lot of Martina Behm patterns is that the shawl itself is mostly garter stitch, with just a unique treatment along the edging.  This edging will be a row of attached hearts.  The shawl will definitely require blocking, so I’ve pinned the hearts out a little for the picture so that you can see them.  At the beginning, I couldn’t see the heart, but once you get through the first couple of repeats, they start to be show better.

For this project I am using Madeline Tosh Merino Light in the Scarlet colorway.  It is a pleasure to knit with and will make for a very comfortable shawl for the recipient to wear around their neck.  If I were to actually work on it regularly, it is a quick knit for a gift.
