Switch is thus named for a number of reasons: the alternating stitch patterns that “switch” between the body of the shawl and the border; the “switching” between the right side and wrong side of the fabric as the shawl is reversible; and lastly, the ability to “switch” to different yarn weights. The shawl is versatile and can be easily knit up in worsted, dk or fingering weight yarn and can be shortened or lengthened depending upon your preference. Regardless of what is chosen, the resulting product is a cozy, enveloping shawl; perfect for a cool, summer’s night and snuggly enough for a cold, winter’s day.
