Roadtrip Shawl

This week’s Freebie Friday features one of our favorite designers:

This is Jennifer Thompson‘s Roadtrip Shawl – a beautiful semi-circular shawl.  It is knit from the top down with ragalan style increases – and is perfect when you are the passanger on a fall road trip!

Durring the fall, I know I like to take long drives – the air is cooler and we can look at the beautiful fall foliage.  So having something with a simple enough lace pattern is perfect – plus once completed, it creates a shawl that I can wrap myself into.

Jennifer did her version with 3 skeins of Palette – but this would also be wonderful in a more luxury yarn like Gloss or Capretta, plus you’d have a wonderful gift to give this holiday season.

Jennifer is featured a lot this month – we just love her designs!  First of all, she is behind the gorgeous patterns in the new book High Desert, plus she has several more availabe as part of IDP.  One of our favorites is the reversible Botanical Caplet – which is available as a kit!

It’s so lovely and warm – plus, it’s a great pattern to lean double knitting!

Here are all of Jennifer’s patterns:
