Here's a swatch for the "Pashmina Shrug/Shawl" pattern from Knitting Central. It's a super easy/mindless knit with elegant results. The main yarn will be Tahki Bali and the contrast will be Filatura di Crosa Semana. Here is a picture of Cynthia, the designer, wearing the original knit in Artyarns Pearl Rhapsody and Beaded Pearl and Sequins.
The pattern is free with purchase of the yarn. I'm thinking of making one in Muench Cadiz, a lovely cotton.
Michelle is making this baby blanket in Plymouth Jeannee. The colors are so bright and cheerful. The pattern is from Lion Brand, their Artful Elegance Afghan. It's a free pattern when you subscribe to their website (also free).

Oh it's gorgeous! But alas, the pattern's not free...it's a $3.95 download, even for members.

Sorry...$2.50 download. Is this the same pattern as Lion Brand's "Centerpiece Treasure"?

You are right, I stand corrected. I think there was a time when they ran it under a different name and it was free with membership. It does look like the same as the Centerpiece Treasure.
