Regular contributor Leah Bothe shares her test knit of the new Standing Waves shawl by Nicole Tavares. This pattern is available on Ravelry! Leah used Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Silk Solid in colorway Ocean, purchased at Allyn Knit Shop, and Fancy Image Yarn Merino Tencel Fingering. Test knitters play an important roll for the designer, to ensure that their pattern is ready for release error free. The test knitters get the chance to knit on something brand new that other knitters aren’t aware even exists. At the time of release, you have a very current piece. This looks great Leah, you always do a fine job – thanks for sharing!
