I’m not sure it is ever possible to have too many garter stitch scarfs and shawls so this is just a little post to share the changes needed to our Touch Me Shawl pattern ( originally posted here) to knit one with Lang 6 ply.
Lang 6 ply is one of my favs for socks as it knits more quickly than 4 ply and lasts really well but it is softly spun so it lovely and soft for shawls as well.

The original pattern was written to end after Row 6, however, if you check your yarn usage and don’t mind a little yarn chicken, you can cast off on any right side row as long as you have enough yarn. Also, using two balls of Lang would make a really large cosy wrap.
Should you be tempted, Lang 6 ply is in our clearance section at £10.95. Also everyone who orders this yarn before the sock pattern is published on Ravelry will receive a download code for a free copy of it once it’s available. It should be available before the end of April.

Now I really need to write some non-garter stitch, non-sock patterns! ; )
