stripe study


I was in need of some comfort knitting - easy, garter stitch and stripes. This shawl was the perfect project.


Interesting shape and wonderful yarns kept the shawl interesting enough, yet my mind was free to wander and take care of my little ones.

Pattern: Coming soon!
Yarns: BFL Sock by Uncommon Thread and Hopeasäie Sukka
Needles: 4mm


Pattern is coming, right after I get all those gray designs ready and published! Hopefully they will be available later this week (the gray ones, not the shawl pattern).

I love how you played with the stripes! Your designs have such a recognizable signature to them - simple, elegant, casual, with a slight interesting twist. Great work again :)

I didn't even notice the tricky striping until I read the first comment. The subtlety is gorgeous.

HUokasin ääneen kun heti kun näin kuvan. Huivi on täydellinen. Mikään ei ole niin kaunista kuin yksinkertaisin keinoin toteutettu nokkela ja omaperäinen idea.

Olet nero. Ihailen.
