Inner Diva Shawl


Inner Diva is the sister pattern to my Divalicious socks, designed in celebration of a new LYS opening up.

Yarn Divas is a delightful new yarn shop located in St. Albert that just opened up in April of this year. The owners, Chrissy and Sherri, reached out to a local dyer and a couple of us local designers to collaborate on some patterns for their grand opening and I had the honor and privilege of being invited on the journey.

Robin, of Rose Hill Yarns, put her talents into coming up with some fabulous colorways in the Yarn Divas colors. Seriously, I don’t know how she did it but she knocked it right out of the park!

This shawl pattern shines well with solid, semi-solid, or lightly-variegated/speckled yarns. Picking an appropriate yarn for this project will ensure you don’t lose the fun texture achieved in the striped sections, nor have a yarn that distracts from the lovely lacework you’ll create.


Inner Diva – This top-down triangular-shaped shawl increases 4 stitches every 2 rows, one increase at each edge and then two at the center spine of the shawl. Worked flat, Inner Diva contains written directions and charts. A handy-dandy progress tracker is included to help you with your rows and stitch counts.
