Kate’s Shawl

Who doesn’t love spotting celebrities in knit and crocheted items; what great inspiration!  Everyone on the Red Heart team was thrilled to see Kate Middleton sporting that cute knit shawl while grocery shopping. Inspired, we designed a similar pattern to share with you!  Make your own Kate’s Shawl with our free pattern.KatesShawl-model

We made it out of Soft yarn, and matched Kate’s green with Dark Leaf. I really like the textured body and the pretty ruffled edging. With the steady increases building the body, this will be an enjoyable and interesting project. I think I might knit mine out of Washable Ewe. I really like working with wool and love that I can put this yarn in the washing machine if it gets tired looking.  Either way, using a medium weight yarn means that this shawl will take a lot less time to make than Kate’s did- which means you can enjoy it even faster!
