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!
I am so happy you took the plunge and are knitting the Paralleling Shawl! I would love to see it once it’s complete or any steps along the way! Happy Knitting and thanks for posting! xo Amanda
I thought I was in over my head when I first started this pattern, but I am on the second side panel and really enjoying how it is turning out. Just have to take it one section at a time. I am sure I will be making more than one. Thanks for this great design!
