I'm so excited because as well as releasing a new pattern today, I'm also officially launching my new logo. I've already added the new logo to my Ravelry group and Facebook page but this is the first patterns with my new logo. I just need to find the time to go back and replace it on all my old patterns.

This is my new banner which will be used for my website and patterns.
These will be used for business cards and other business stationery.

I'm also releasing a new pattern today and I'm so excited about this pattern because the Capri shawl is beautiful. I was inspired by traditional Shetland hap shawls but I wanted a modern, elegant look. 

Capri is a triangular shawl blends simple garter stitch with a bold lace pattern for a modern shawl based on traditional Shetland hap construction. First you knit the centre triangle from the bottom up. You work a yarn over at the beginning of every row which gives you a loopy edging. For the lace, you pick up a stitch in each of those yarn overs then knit the lace border from the top down, just like any top down triangle with a centre spine. I will be doing a Monday Mini Tip Tutorial on how this shawl is shaped and how to pick up stitches into the yarn over loops on Monday.

 200g of luxurious 4ply/fingering weight yarn is used to create this exquisite shawl. I used two skeins of La Bien Aimee - Merino Light for the centre triangle and MCN Light for the lace border. Both are gorgeous yarns. If you prefer to use an alternative yarn, then you need two skeins of sock yarn or 4ply/fingering weight yarn which have approx 400m per 100g skein.

Capri is 25% off until 26 August 2016. No coupon code needed. Cast on Capri now, and you'll have a cozy shawl which you can also wear as a scarf when the cold weather hits in the next few months.
