It’s all too tempting when in a yarn store to buy beautiful yarns, even if you do not necessarily have a pattern in mind for each skein. This can lead to later issues when trying to find a pattern to go with the yarn. At least, this is a problem I have. Because of this, I am always on the lookout for projects that only require one skein for all of the single skeins I have at home. An added bonus of single-skein projects is that, because they only require one skein of yarn, they make for relatively inexpensive projects.
This garter stitch shawlette meets all of the above requirements. This super simple (and free!) shawlette is made out of one skein of Silk Jewel. In my opinion, this yarn really lends the shawlette its wow-factor. Each incredibly soft skein of 100% silk features 225 yards of deep, rich colors. Not only are the colors stunning Silk Jewel is also double stranded with beads, adding some glitz to your project!
So the result is that you achieve a stunning beaded effect that looks as though you’ve put in a ton of extra effort without actually beading your project yourself (though, we can keep this our little secret). Add to all of this the beautiful sheen and drape, and what’s not to love about this yarn. We also have new stock of Yarn Bowls in several vibrant colors to choose from. You can find this pattern under our “free patterns” category. -Michael
