Simply Striped Knit Lace Shawl FREE Pattern

Simply Striped Knit Lace Shawl FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

The Simply Striped Lace Shawl is another easy project in Kristin Omdahl Yarns Spring 2016 Collection. This is a 2-skein project featuring Be So Sporty Yarn, in Jaded Peacock and Harbor Fog.

This clever stitch pattern is reversible because of the odd number of rows in the repeat! Changing color after every repeat gives this pretty shawl a look of even deeper complexity. But in reality, it couldn’t be simpler.

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!

I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.

Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.

I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.

But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.

Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.

Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports

Project Kristin Cares. Please help me eradicate domestic violence, one sale at a time.

xoxo, Kristin

    I was interested in printing this pattern; however, when I click on Print PDF I only get your paragraph about domestic violence. I have been unable to print the pattern. If I just try to print without using the Print PDF button the "KO" logo is in the way on every page.

      Sometimes browsers are not compatible with this. I have heard that emailng the pattern to yourself solves this issue. Try that. If all else fails, email me through the contact button and I can send it to you.

      xoxo, Kristin
