Meet the Emily Shmemily – a fingering-weight shawlette pattern designed by Shannon just for me! But I’ll share.
I made a simple scarf a few years ago, just because it was a pattern I wanted to knit. I never wore the scarf, and offered it to Emily when I discovered that she didn’t have a handknit scarf or shawl (yeah, I’ll wait a minute and allow you to calm down after reading that horrifying revelation). Well, she had it all of 2 minutes when her boyfriend STOLE it. Her 30th was coming up, and I was racking my brain – what to get for my wonderful partner? Bing-bing-bing! I decided to design a shawlette for her, and I made it girly enough that the boy wouldn’t even be tempted to take it from her. Thus the Emily Shmemily was born.
