Every now and then a pattern comes along that gets us really excited (more than usual). This eye-catching shawl/scarf looks more complicated than it is and that will be our secret. While knitting this colorful accessory using only one color at a time, you will learn:
cabled cast on
- quilt stitch
- mosaic technique using slipped stitches
- i-cord bind off
"It is an elongated, asymmetrical triangular shawl with a curved top edge. You'll start knitting with just a few stitches at one tip, then work your way across to the opposite edge creating the triangular shape by increasing/decreasing at the edges. It is finished with an i-cord bind-off" From the designer, Lisa Hannes
Supplies: Two color yarns in colors with good contrast. If you want the shawl/scarf to be even more striking, make one of the the yarns variegated or long-striping and the other a contrasting solid. Any yarn from fingering to aran weight will work. Allow approx 200 yards of each color, if using fingering weight yarn, you will likely need 400 yards of each.
