Is there any way I can verse lyrically about my love for Anzula that I haven't already?

This past weekend, TNNA Winter happened at Long Beach, California. While I personally wasn't there (more on how I kind of was there on another post, thanks Heather Zopetti) some of my designs were present and visible at the Anzula booth. I loaned them Maighdean Mhara and Echoes of Winter to showcase their Mermaid and Echo yarns. I was VERY happy when they also asked me to design something for the Sample It! event, where reps and serious-business peeps go to treat themselves on the Friday evening.

And so, Rockpool was born.


Rockpool is a one-skein wonder (either fingering weight or lace weight).



It's a triangular shawl that steps away from the feminine-overall look into a geometric and angular look



Constructed from the long edge inwards, the edging works with lace on both right and wrong sides to create a superbly arrowed edge.



While the body remains solid with directional lines



With fingering weight and correct gauge, you will have a 26″ x 52″ triangle (66 x 132 cm), but with laceweight you end up with a 40″ x 80″ (101 x 202 cm).



The skinny:

Finished SizesSmall (Large) – 26 (40)” tall by 52 (80)” wide / 66 (101) cm tall by 132 (202) cm wide

YarnAnzula Milky Way (80% Milk Protein, 20% Superwash Merino; 500yds / 457 m per 100g skein) 1 (2) skeins. Shade shown: Slate

Knitting Needles Size US3 / 3.25 mm circular

Knitting Gauge (Blocked)20sts = 4” / 10cm in Little Waves Chart

Notions 2 markers, cable needle, scissors, tapestry needle. Thread/lifeline supplies if desired

Is that all?

Mais non!!

    For some reason, though I just bought the pattern, I completely missed the part where I was supposed to enter the code… The “buy” link above took me straight to Paypal and I don’t think it asked me for a code… Just thought I’d put it out there!

    Thanks for such a lovely pattern!

    Wow Ruth! You’ve done it again, yet another beautiful piece of knitted art. Thanks for the discount – I look forward to knitting this snuggly shawl. I have also loved “your” journey around the TNNA stands via Heather and Twitter!

    Dear Ruth, please stop releasing these lovely designs. My paypal account is crying for help. 

    Just kidding, of course. I wonder how milk protein yarn feels. Mmm, milk.

  7. Kirsty   •  

    I had to buy it through the Ravelry Pattern Page in order to get the code to work.
