Hello again,

I would like to make a simple lacy shawl or scarf for my cousin using pima-tencel yarn (to go with the various chemo caps I made for her). I haven't learned fancy stuff like knitting into half the stitch or twisting the stitch (or other things I've seen but not really understood yet). I can knit, purl, ktog, psso, ssk, yarn over, do a basic cable, and could figure out a few more with clear instructions.

I would be grateful for suggestions or shared free patterns that make sense with this kind of yarn.

thanks so much, everyone

Both of these look fairly easy and I think would be nice in a cotton/tencel. What's the weight of your yarn?

Hi
Thanks for the nice patterns! I think I'll make "Cosy."

About the yarn;
CASCADE
PIMA TENCEL
A great year-round blend that is very soft and creates a lovely garment.
