The Clover Honey Shawlette is by Hannah Six for Sock Yarn, One Skein Wonders. It is a lovely shawl with a square panel of lace at the back that looks like busy bees. Perhaps that’s why Hannah calls it Clover Honey. It has an interesting C-shape that makes it easy to wrap around one’s shoulders.
I admit the lace panel gave me a bit of trouble at the beginning and I made two false starts with a lot of frogging. Maybe it just took a while for me to get the hang of it, but on my third attempt the lace came together and cute little bee pattern emerged.
Hannah’s original pattern included some beads but I decided not to add them. Once the Clover Honey Shawlette was complete, however, it became obvious that another embellishment was necessary. I had a bit of yarn remaining so I made two fat tassels on either end, creating the adornment required. The tassels added a bit of weight to the shawl ends, which helps keep the shawl stay put on your shoulders.
I used a yarn called Avid, from Grand Valley Fibre Company, that I picked it up from the Evergreen Brick Works Farmers Market. The slightly slubby, tonal yarn is 70% alpaca, 20% merino, and 10% nylon. It is a rich pink colour with hints of purple. Overall, the yarn was a pleasure to knit and it created a very warm shawl.
