Quilter Caroline has a new pattern out called Yellow Roses, and for October and November 75% of proceeds go to the MIND.org.uk charity
I have been supporting Mind ever since and am really happy to be supporting them with this venture. I have been liaising with their Supporters services team and in particular Maria Healy. I want to be as transparent as possible and will be posting updates in my Clothesline Designs group on Ravelry and on my Instagram page (quiltercaroline)
I would be so very grateful if you felt able to share this information on your podcast and your social media as I really want to make as much money as possible for this essential charity. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or queries.
Many thanks Caroline (Clothesline Designs / quiltercaroline)
Yellow Roses is the last in a trio of shawls inspired by my “Grandmothers Flower Garden” Scarf. This one is dedicated to my Fraser who lost his battle with mental health in 2010 aged 30. Although you can knit this in any colour, yellow roses became important to Frasers mum and I after his death.This pattern contains the pattern for a single colour shawl which uses a rose lace pattern on a stockinette base, with garter edge and border. It has both charted and written instructions in a table with regular stitch counts.The shawl is an elongated crescent, which is easy to knit and wear, knit from the top down all in one piece.
