Princess and The Pea Knitting Pattern and Kit for Sale





Princess and The Pea is a triangular-ish shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked on both the right and wrong sides, but it is easy enough to memorize and knit. Because of the shape, this shawl is very easy to wear and stays put on the shoulder. Pattern includes charts and written directions. If you would like to add beads to your shawl, instructions are included as to where to place the beads.

FO: Princess and The Pea

So, if any of you wondering how is the Princess and the Pea looks like, you can see the photos below.
I made 2 samples of this pattern. The first sample, I made extra small with Pear colorway. This is the trial sample, and since I like the result, I wrote the pattern and then made the medium size using Princess colorway.

I think that this pattern is suitable for Mystery Knit Along, because each clue is different.
