So I told you about the Firebricks Cowl last week, but in my excitement that the project made the cover, I completely forgot to tell you that there is another pattern of mine in the colleciton: Intensify Shawl.
With contrasting stripes of color that expand and contract, this shawl mirrors the path of water as the tides ebb.
Small garter stitch stripes using five contrast colours alternate with stockinette parts in a neutral background colour. The contrast colours are used in the same colour sequence in each section but the stockinette stripes become smaller with each repeat worked, so that the colourful garter stitch stripes become more prominent with each section worked. An additional eye-catching feature is one half of the border, which is knitted on sideways. The shawl is knit from the top down.
The pattern is available individually or as part of the Cute & Cozy Stashbusters collection from the Knit Picks website, here.
