The Valley Yarns Designer Series Avocet Kit includes the PDF
pattern download and the Southwick yarn in Soft Grape you need to knit this
richly textured shawl.
Avocet is a soft and drapey triangular shawl that highlights the best qualities
of Valley Yarns Southwick. With a smooth feel and a beautiful sheen, this blend
of Pima cotton and bamboo is perfect for warm-weather projects—both to knit and
to wear! Avocet features an intricate lace and cable pattern along one edge with
additional small cables climbing the reverse stockinette stitch background.
Summer shawls can be the perfect accessory to ward off overzealous A/C without
overheating you, and Avocet is a gorgeous choice! Stitch patterns are both
charted and written out.
