In the Shallows Shawlette
After a long detour through Stockinette, I rediscovered the joy and simple pleasure of Garter Stitch. No offense, Stockinette, but sometimes your smoothness and tendency to curl up brings me down (only a little - I love ya, Stockinette). Garter Stitch, with all its squish factor, marvelous ability to lay flat, and awesome ability to mix and mingle stitches in variegated yarn into a more cohesive whole, is awesome too. In the Shallows puts Garter Stitch to great use, and you get to decide if you want to be plain or fancy. Better yet: make one of each!
What you’ll love about knitting In the Shallows:
- 1 needle + 1 skein of yarn (choose one you love!) = yards and meters of pleasurable knitting
- Once you get started, the pattern is a breeze to remember
- A lot more fun to knit than the traditional long scarf
- Notes are included for some tips and tricks you’ll use again and again
- You get to wear that skein of yarn you love!
- Shape of the shawl means you can wear it as a shoulder-warming shawl, scarf with trailing ends front and back, AND bandit-style to keep your neck cozy and provide a pop of color to any outfit
- It’s the simple, elegant piece that won’t fight with other parts of your wardrobe
