I've had several customers come to The Naked Sheep lately to buy yarn for the Saroyan. I fell in love the first time I saw it! This lovely shawl/scarf uses worsted weight yarn; and would make an excellent first lace project.
I'm using Jewel from Cascade Yarns. It's a fun to knit pattern; I'm especially enjoying the leaf edging detail.
Stop by and see it in person; it's really stunning.
