Veter Shawl

close up of my Veter Shawl. The shawl is light blue and cream.

Pattern: Veter Shawl by Life Is Cozy (link leads to Ravelry)

Yarn: Robin’s Egg on Simple Sock and Vanilla on Mohair Lace
Amount: 1 skein of each

Needles: US 8 (5 mm), US 9, US 10

Started: May 16, 2020
Finished: June 8, 2020

I cast on with a US 10 and bound off with a US 9. I ended my shawl on sections 19 – instead of working the last wrong side row, I bound off. I just barely had enough of my Robin’s Egg yarn to finish!

This is quite possibly the FLUFFIEST piece of knitting I own. So light and airy! Yes, it creates a large shawl, but is so thin that it can be worn like a scarf without any bulk.

Ravelry: I also have a Ravelry Project Page for this knit. However, many people (myself included) have had issues with the new Ravlery. It is known to cause eye strain, headaches, migraines, and seizures. Please be careful when proceeding to Ravelry!

Posting about knitting seems… trivial right now. However, knitting on this test knit has brought me a little bit of joy during this time, so I wanted to share a sneak peek with you. This is part of the Veter Shawl by @life_is_cozy and it’s quite possibly the fluffiest bit of knitting I’ve ever had. I used one skein of my Simple Sock and one skein of my new mohair base! I’d love to know… what’s bringing you joy right now? While I cant say this brings me “joy,” I really appreciate all the growth that I see happening with eyes being opened to the injustices of the world… I will continue to do my best to share anti-racism and Black Lives Matter resources in my Stories and do my own learning and changing. #lifeiscozy #vetershawl #testknit #testknittersofinstagram #testknitting #patternpreview #heatheredhandmades #handknitshawl #handdyedyarn #indiedyedyarn #indieyarn #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry

The Veter Shawl by @life_is_cozy is now live on @hi.ravelry! @life_is_cozy is donating 20% of the pattern sales to ACT-SO, a division of NAACP designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among Aftrican-American high school students. Like I said on Wednesday, this is quite possibly the fluffiest piece of knitting I have! Not only is it fluffy, it’s also so light and airy! I can wear this as a scarf with practically no bulk. Well, only indoors… cause it is way too hot outside right now. 🥵🌡☀️ #patternrelease #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry #knit #heatheredhandmades #vetershawl #lifeiscozy #knitshawl #yarnlove #knitstagram #yarnlovers #indiedyedyarn #indieyarn #testknittersofinstagram #testknitting #testknit
