Bright October was my 2021 autumn shawl-along! This shawl was designed using four colors of Coastal yarn, a lovely silk/merino/linen blend created by Elemental Affects and Sincere Sheep. Each skein is 205 yards, and it knits up as a sport weight yarn with a lovely drape and crispness. I’ve loved using it for mosaic!

This pattern was released digitally in five installments, beginning on 20 October 2021, and included five YouTube lives with tips and tricks. The access codes to view the lives are still active, and you can still access the recordings on my YouTube channel. The pattern with associated tips and tricks uses a “pay what you can” model to make it more accessible to more people, while helping me to defray some of the costs for my own time. It is also included in my 9 Lives eBook.

Feel free to substitute yarn, but please do not choose a yarn with less than 205 yards. Note when choosing colors: one of the colors needs to contrast well with each of the other three so that the mosaic pattern will show up properly.

This listing is for a PDF pattern download with five associated YouTube links shown in the pattern.
