Well.. well... It's the final day of the pattern sale, and I've saved the best for last!
For today's discount pattern, I have chosen my most popular, favorite design of all time..
The Cedar Leaf Shawlette!
I can honestly say that this shawlette is a wardrobe staple for me. I wear my original version ALL THE TIME during the cooler months. Every time I wear it I am complimented on it.
It's my favorite accessory, and the first one I always pick out of my handknits drawer.

And by the way.. to officially clear this up. I know that Cedar trees don't have leaves. :) (Well.. they don't have leaves like the ones pictured on this shawlette anyways.) They are more like needles, actually. Anyways.. I added the word Cedar to this pattern because of the colorway I used in the original version. I am still so in love with the Handmaiden Lady Godiva yarn I used for this knit and their "Cedar" colorway is absolutely amazing.
So there you go. Just in case you have been wondering. :)
With so many projects on Ravelry, it has been fun to see this pattern knit up in yarns of many different weights, textures and colors. I'm delighted by how versatile this design has proven to be. I've seen it knit up in everything from lace-weight to bulky-weight yarn successfully.
There are MANY, many amazing versions of this shawlette on Ravelry, but here is a small sampling.
|Knit by Geri (g3t2a on Ravelry) I love how her version of the shawlette is styled. I think it looks so elegant worn around the neck with a beautiful pin to keep it in place.|
|Knit by Juju (Chickpeastudio on Ravelry) I love this cheery bright version of Cedar Leaf. What a fun outfit accessory!|
|Knit by Hannah (Walrus on Ravelry). Many knitters have chosen to add beads to the leafy border. I didn't think of this when I was designing this pattern, but now wish that I had! A perfect addition!|
