I made yoga mat bags this holiday for friends - instead of making a circle for the bottom of the bag I just made a casing and put elastic in it - drawing it tight to close and form the rounded bottom. Just add a few inches to the length for this.


Hi Erin & Maridee,
The shawl was in the Dec. 2009 issue which is not archived on the site anymore. I tore out my picture but am hoping to have a friend make the shawl for me, if I do I will take a photo of it and post it. And thanks to Judy for the non-itchy yarn suggestion. Happy New Year!

The shawl is from the Dec. '09 issue. You can see a photo of it @

Email me if that doesn't work and I'll send it directly.


I would like a copy of th picture too please. My mom is a knitter and is going to knit the meditation shawl for me. Thank you!


Which issue is the photo of the shawl included in? I just stopped at the store and looked at the June 2010 issue and did not see it.


My daughter-in-law asked me to make the shawl for her, but she itches when wool is next to her skin. At I found the Impressionist Collection, "Impressionist Oasis" which is a blend of rayon and cotton. The look is the same as the picture (which I've lost). Could you please email me a copy of the picture, as the yarn has arrived!

I am having a problem finding the wool used in pattern-Kersti merino crepe by Koigu. Please send me the gauge needed ( stitiches required on needle size). Thanks

My daughter is a subscriber to your magazine , and she has requested that I knit the shawl for her. Please could you email a picture of the shawl so that I know what it should look like?

re:Shawl. Can you give me the brqnd name of a non-wool yarn, maybe cotton or bamboo, that would give the look of your shawl. This is for my vegan daughter.


here are my eye pillows!
