http://www.ravelry.com/projects/annaotherthing2/carols-clever-little-shawl

I've been looking at shawl patterns this morning and most look like they're waaay to difficult (for me) but really beautiful, lace patterns. I think they're beyond my abilities at the moment. Maybe someday. Smile Anyway, I found the one at the link above that I like a lot. Does this pattern look really difficult? If you all think I could manage it I'd love to try it in March.

Actually Bonnie, having looked at the pattern, I don't think this shawl is as simple as it looks.

But there are patterns out there that are not difficult. I'll (or anyone else who wants to )have a look and post some links if you like.

Or maybe I'm wrong.

Opinions anyone?

I've found

http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/shawls-shrugs/feather-and-fan-comfort-shawl.htm

http://yummyyarn.indus3ous.com/archives/knit/shawls/simple_yarn_over/

http://www.cosmicpluto.com/blog/simple-yet-effective-shawl/

http://www.cu-needleworks.com/Patterns/Shawls/Trinagular_shawl/trinagular_shawl.pdf

Also on knitty.com there's Clapotis which isn't really difficult and one of the Tie One On shawls.

And Cozy is only an 8 row pattern so although you need to concentrate it's not too bad.

I think one of mine is the same as one Lilybee suggested but not a Rav link.

This is just a suggestion, so please feel free to comment if there are things you think should be included, or something that shouldn't be there.

Hopefully this is a broad range of techniques, and will give plenty of scope for patterns so that people can pick something suitable for their skill level.

March - Shawl KAL
May - Cable KAL - anything from a dishcloth to an afghan
July - Socks KAL (it will be summer for most of us, and socks are small. Wink )
September - Colourwork KAL - Intarsia, fair isle or just plain stripes

sounds good Kathryn. I really want to do socks this year and I have loads of fair isle mittens patterns I want to do. Cables are always good too

Looks good to me. I am excited about the sock KAL. The cable one also looks interesting. Smile

Good thinking, Kathryn! I love it. It will be a perfect way for me to make my way through my stash this year, with the support of a suggestion and friends working along on the same type of thing. Very Happy

That's strange. My plans for the year include

a shawl

several pairs of socks

an aran cardigan for me and a cabled sweater for GS

a jacket with mitred stripes (IYSWIM) that I have had the yarn for, for 3 years. Embarassed

Well that's me sorted out for the year.
