Sally Holt at knitCompanion has turned her powerful system to Romi Hill and her gorgeous shawls. This is year four of her 7 Small Shawls Series, can you believe it? Wasn’t the first year just last week? This year her topic is Friends, she’s naming each one of her shawls after a member of her Ravelry group. There are 7 shawl patterns and 3 extra patterns. The first extra is a available now, A Cowl for Jeanne.
This app updates with each shawl release, adding the new pattern to knitCompanion’s amazing system and a technique video featuring Romi.
If you haven’t tried the knitCompanion system the designer apps are a re great way to get a taste. knitCompanion allows a knitter to see the written and charted patterns at the same time, mark and save in many spots in a pattern with place holders and reminders – highlighters, stitch markers and pop up notes. It’s a wonderfully organized program.
I really like that I can keep very accurate track of my knitting, especially lace, with this app, but what I love is getting to see Romi’s smiling face, talking me through each pattern!
7 Small Shawls is also available as just a PDF series.
