Polaris Shawl

Posted: December 18, 2021 by Tonja Pe Benito

It’s time for a new design and I would like to introduce my newest design, the Polaris Shawl. I wanted to bring a little of Summer into Winter with the Polaris Shawl. Using bulky yarn and a lace pattern the Polaris Shawl has an elegant drape, beautiful texture, and adds some warmth. I’m also honored you can find the kit available at Lion Brand Yarn. This is a free pattern and a low-cost PDF with written instructions is available in my Shop and Ravelry.  
This is a pattern with repeating rows so it works up quickly once you get the first rows down. It’s a nice project to get cozy with and watch your favorite show or movie.
 I loved working with Scarfie, it’s a lovely mixture of acrylic and wool that is soft and versatile. The color options for a kit are available at Lion Brand Yarn!
I had just as much fun taking these pictures next to this giant Hawaiian Pothos. I’ll be wearing my Polaris Shawl with some jeans and hanging out at my favorite local coffee shop.

I hope you love this fun pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.

The Polaris Shawl was inspired by the stars in the Winter sky. The lace pattern displays an elegance that can be worn at home or for an evening out.
