Pattern Roundup: Tansy

This was so quick to knit! The pattern was easy to memorize and knit without constant re-checking from the pattern and I could easily watch tv while knitting. It still looks fascinating and more difficult than it truly is.  – Taru, Test Knitter

I am thrilled to announce the release of a new rhyFlower design, Tansy, a potato chippy one-skein wonder featuring Celtic Raven Fibres.

Tansy represents my newfound calmness. Not needing chaotic lace to escape in, just a mindless rhythmic knit that I could quickly work on without the pattern after a few repeats. There’s a sort of peacefulness in such a knit, which is entirely new to me as I usually desire highly engaging knits.

Tansy, a one-skein triangular-shaped shawl, worked on the bias, has easy to remember repeats that make this a very quick knit. This shawl is also easy to modify if you’d like to use more skeins to make a bigger shawl. The simply eyelets of this one-skein wonder will work beautifully with solids, semi-solids, speckles, and variegated yarns, utilizing that one of a kind skein that may be lingering in your stash! As a one-skein project, this shawl works up quickly – ideal for last-minute gift-giving. 😊

Worked flat, Tansy contains written directions, charts, and is broken down into comprehensive sections. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the techniques used and a handy-dandy progress tracker to help you keep track of your row and stitch counts.
Want a bigger shawl? Perhaps you’d like to use 2 or 3 skeins instead of just one. It couldn’t be any easier! Repeat sections 1 & 2, finishing off on section one, then head straight to section 4 and finish your shawl off! Remember, creating a bigger shawl will change the yarn requirements for this project.
