Paralleling Shawl is simple, sophisticated and a delight to knit. Stripes of Stockinette & Reverse Stockinette stitch parallel each other with adjacent garter stitch side panels. The shawl is worked in, what I like to call “Section-Knitting;” each component is written out in easy-to-follow sectioned directions. This is my new favorite design technique that will keep you engaged throughout the entire project! Paralleling Shawl is worked bottom up, working bands of Stockinette & Reverse Stockinette st; the side panels are then picked up and worked in garter st short rows; finally the icord bind off is worked around the entire perimeter of the shawl. Tassels are added for extra movement but are easily left out for a more minimalistic look.
