Fée by Tabetha HedrickFée is a brand new shawl knitting pattern for you! It was SUCH a fun project to design as I entered in a unique realm of shawl construction and fun. I wanted to play with new shaping and while it looks complex, you’ll enjoy the progression of asymmetry that falls into place in a surprisingly natural way. The results are truly fantastic! Light, airy, delicate, like wings of a fairy. It wraps around the shoulders or neck just perfectly, making it an easy choice for a year-round project.

 Fée by Tabetha Hedrick Fée by Tabetha HedrickFée uses only one skein of fingering-weight yarn, but you’ll delight in the ease with which you can customize it to a smaller or larger shawl.

I chose to use a soft, yet with definite texture, yarn from a small indie dyer: Fairyblue Knits & Dyes, Too! It was a custom dye job she did for me and the semi-solid tones worked perfectly, with a luscious hue that photographed beautifully. Go support an indie yarnie!

And right now, you can get Fée at a special introductory price of $4.50 (that’s $1.50 off!). The regular price of $6 resumes on Saturday, so you have until Friday night, June 13th (ending at 11:59pm MST), to snap it up at the discounted price! No coupon code needed – the price is already taken off at checkout.

pattern notes
This crescent-shaped shawl is worked from the neck down, beginning with a garter tab cast-on. The pattern is written only.

There’s one little technique I use that might need a little explanation, the Garter-Tab Cast-On. Go check out the video tutorial by Loop Yarn that taught ME how to do it about a year or so ago: http://youtu.be/TaQHMmEIvgU

    Tabetha,
    I knit up your Allegra shawl for my wife – she loved it and wore it at our daughter’s wedding in Eagle. This looks like a perfect shawl for our Colorado evenings! I’m sure she’d find many uses for this one too.
