Flashback Friday: Khamseen
This is another pattern I really like. Large shawls are really my thing. The small ones are great for throwing over a dress or jeans, but when I want to be cozy or dramatic, a large shawl is what I need. When I started working on this actively, I realized that it was scheduled to be released right around when my 50th pattern was. I made sure it was my 50th pattern in my store. The name Khamseen means 50, and is named after a wind that is said to blow for 50 days. Entirely by coincident, the number of stripes to get to the right stitch count for the border was 50, and of course, there were 50 repeats of the border. All of that just delighted my number loving heart.
