A new {free!} pattern for you, the Quaking Aspen Shawl {web link} {rav link}, named after the beautiful aspen tree that bears its name. The shawl features Acadia in Driftwood + Kelp and begins with a garter stitch triangle, stripes and then a knit on lace border. End result is a easy to execute shawl with a lot of textural and visual interest. Originally designed as part of the Serendipity Yarn + Gifts as a part of their October Knit-A-Long, the pattern is now available on the Kelbourne website for your knitting enjoyment.
