I have designed a free shawl pattern for a knit-a-long on my Facebook Page: KAL for Invest in ME Research.
Please visit the facebook page and click on "Files" to find your free pattern. Link to facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KAL4IiMER/
In return please donate to Invest in ME Research in order to fund biomedical research into this disease.
The first pattern for Invest in ME Research was the Jen Shawl. The "Jen Shawl" is an easy pattern to knit or it would make a great gift for a knitter. The shawl is named after Jennifer Brea who made the documentary film "Unrest". You can take part in the knit-a-long on social media on the Facebook page: Jen Shawl KAL . The pattern is currently being made available in English, Russian, German, Swedish and Dutch with the French translation hopefully following soon. You can see it is going to be a fun time and there is no deadline.
