One skein Reyna - a shawl for all occasions

Reyna by MeenaWeena
The "Reyna" shawl knitting pattern was designed to finish with one skein of sock or fingering yarn, specifically a variegated yarn. But knit this large triangle in black or glitter yarn and voila! an evening shawl for the whole year through and a real option for Mother's Day gifts, birthdays, etc.

It's an easy, free pattern, one you'll want to download now; patterns don't always remain gratis, as the Holden Shawlette, which is now available for purchase but also includes three different sizes.

Please read on...

Designed by Noora Laivola, Reyna is rated easy and the amount of openwork can be adjusted if you choose. The stitch pattern is a simple yarn over and k2tog. Many knitters have finished this wrap with a picot edge, it's really up to individual taste.

The finished shawl pictured in the header is by MeenaWeena of Chicago, a youtube self-taught knitter. Bravo!

Artyarns Mohair Glitter

Try this shawl pattern in a black or glitter yarn for a dressier look. Artyarns has all that glitters.

How beautiful for Mother's Day! There are a kazillion colors.

And if you are not a knitter, one skein of sock or fingering yarn is a perfect Mother's Day gift. The Reyna shawl pattern requires 380-420 yards (347-384m) of yarn.
Here's the pattern link.
