Walk the Line Shawl

Showing off two my favourite design elements, stripes and I-cords, this shawl is worked on the bias. You start with only three stitches at one corner, work increases on one side every row and decreases on the other side every other row, thus working a long flat triangle which is extremely versatile and can be worn in many ways.
The I-cord edging on two sides hides all colour changes and will give the shawl a clean and well finished look.
The yarn I used for my sample shown in the photographs is a 1 Farm – 1 Flock – 1 Clip yarn by Fibre Artist Chrissie Day. The colours are inspired by Chrissie’s home high and remote in the Upper Dale where Winters are hard, Spring brings rejoicing and Summers are sublime with the sound of the returning birds chattering and flying and peewits swooping. Colours from wild meadow flowers, heathers and the lichen on the old gates and fences and the sky changing through multiple colours in one hour.
