Today the Paralleling Shawl pattern went live on the site! It was so much fun to design and I used my new favorite design technique "Section-Knitting:" each section of the pattern has distinct steps to follow, leading the way to a finished shawl! This way of organizing the pattern, I find, keeps you engaged and interested for the entire project!
This shawl has an unusual construction: the middle triangle is worked first, then the side panels are picked up and knit, followed by an icord cast off around the entire perimeter.
A new fun knit! This sample is made from Madelinetosh Pashmina (2 skeins) or about 575 yards/525 meters of sport or light DK weight yarn. Colorway: Calligraphy.
This sample is made from Cashmere Co-op Snow fox. An ethical blend of fox and cashmere. This light DK weight yarn was amazing to work with; it was luxurious, soft and I highly recommend it!
The stitches are loose and a bit airy on both version which gives the shawl a nice drape and lots of movement! You know I love pompoms... and I sure love tassels too!
