Sneak peek: Tumbling Leaves Shawl

At least that’s what I think I’m calling it. Let me know if you have a better idea!

This is a wide crescent shawl, knit from the top down with two skeins of Bumblebirch Heartwood Fingering in Hellebore and Atlantic (75/25 Superwash Merino/Nylon, 100g/463 yards each).

I love the way the blue eyelet rows squiggle, and I love, love, love the leaves.

Remember the stripe swatch? I think the one I chose (second from the top) worked out perfectly!

The pattern is off to the tech editor, and I’m looking for a few test knitters. I’m hoping I can get this out in September, which is knitting season! Of course it’s always knitting season at my house. But this last week, especially. Hot and hazy out (thanks, Canadian wildfires), so I’ve just been hiding out at home. Knitting!

How about you?

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the leaves also. But you know me, I also love beads with leaves. Will you have a chart with bead placements?

    • I love beaded leaves, too! I don’t think it even needs to be charted; I’d just put them on the stitch between the yarn overs of each leaf. Easy-peasy. But you might want to consider only doing them in the last section, or on the last row of leaves in each section…because otherwise that’s a LOT of beads!


  2. I enjoyed testing knitting your Go Tell the Bees shawl so much.  I’d love to test knit this one for you too if you’d like.

  3. Lots of knitting going on here, but I don’t seem to make much progress. LOL

    Your new pattern is lovely.

    • I saw the re-start of your purple ribbing. But I’m sure I knit the equivalent of three of these shawls by the time I figured out how it really needed to be!


  4. Love the new shawl. I would enjoy testing the pattern for you. I don’t know how much help I would be because I’m a slow knitter.

  5. oh- that’s a pretty one!

  6. I have nearly gotten tired of the leaf pattern – it is so ubiquitous – even though I rather like it. Then this comes along and makes it fresh and new and even more beautiful again! Lovely.
