Tea House

Originally this shawl was going to be called Knit Night, after thinking it over I didn't want knitters who don't have a knit night to feel excluded or think the pattern wasn't for them .

What this shawl really is is a take-along project for whenever you have some time to knit, whether you are by yourself, having coffee with a friend, or at knit night. The next name was going to be Coffee House, I don't drink coffee so that was nixed. 

My best friend and knit companion Cameron is a voracious tea drinker so whenever we are knitting together that is what she will usually order. The pink color in the shawl is named Tea Rose, so as inspiration from her and the yarn name Tea House was born! 

Tea House is a hybrid shawl shape, deeper than a traditional crescent but not a half circle either. So simple to memorize and a great way to combine some colors. Tea House is pretty much the same row over and over again while changing the colors. 

The yarn I used is a Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend but as usual any fingering weight yarn will work. Only part of this shawl you have to pay a speck of attention to is the picot bind off. I've included a video link for a tutorial incase knitters have never used this bind off before.
