The Mara shawl
Some yarns are so gorgeous that you have to let them shine and one way to do it is to use a simpler pattern. I picked up this beautiful Madelinetosh DK in "Blood runs Cold" and it is a gorgeous red. As very rich red and just what I wanted to wear this winter once the weather gets cold and drab.
The Mara Shawl is a very simple triangular shawl with a 2x2 rib on the edge. A quick and simple knit during TV time or while I'm waiting on the kids at sports. I used a size 8 needles instead of the 7 recommended in the pattern just because I wanted a looser knit. Mara is a free downloadable pattern, all details on my Ravelry page.
