Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted - 2 balls coal, 1 ball hyacinth, 1 ball sapphire heather. The total yarn cost is only about $8!
The pattern itself costs $2.99, making this an $11 project. Lots of knitting enjoyment and a lovely shawl for not much money!
This shawl uses both stranded colorwork and intarsia, making for a fun, interesting knit. There is also large swaths of plain Stockinette without any color changes, making it great in-front-of-the-TV or while-your-kids-are-still-awake knitting. I hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did.
And we have to include a shout-out to the bird who inspired it all, Steller's Jay:
