This past June I designed a new pattern for the Not-So-Sock Club at Yarn4Socks. I also dyed the yarn for the pattern in an exclusive colorway. I kept the pattern a bit of a secret: I wanted the clubbers to know as much as they could without me giving away the whole kit. I promised to make the pattern available to the general public in August, and here it is.
The shawl is shaped similarly to Traveling Woman, but the increases are raglan style rather than yarn overs. Eyelets break up the stocking stitch before beginning a geometric lace design. The geometric lace pattern was inspired by the architecture of the sprawling manner in Citizen Kane.
I provided the clubbers with one skein of Femme Fatale Fibers Lilith Sock skeining up in a generous 500 yards. The pattern, however, does not require 500 yards (requires a minimum of 440 yards).
You can purchase the pattern through my Ravelry shop using PayPal (you do not need an account to use either service).

The shawl is a bit advanced: there are charts for the edging and main body for both the first and second charts. They are easy to read if you are familiar with charts, but if you are not, it may be difficult.
The pattern is both charted and written.
You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry for now as I appear to be having problems with PayPal (again).
