Spring has make an appearance and what better way is there to celebrate it than with an airy shawl in sunny yellow? I'm happy to tell you that my latest pattern the Simple Things Shawl was released on Thursday in the latest issue of Knit Now Magazine.
The shawl is worked from the top down. The shape is created with five identical triangles, which are increased every fourth row on each side of the triangle. It requires three skeins of fingering weight yarn; the sample was knitted in Scheepjes Our Tribe (4-ply; 420m per 100g ball; 70% Merino wool, 30% polyamide) in colourway Old Bewick.
The shawl shows perfectly the different results that can be achieved using the most basic and rather simple (hence the name of the shawl) knitting techniques: knit or purl decreases paired with yarnover stitches. The look depends on where and which way the decreases are worked.
The pattern is included in Knit Now, Issue 141, now available from newsstands in the UK or online from Craftstash or as digital issue from Pocketmags.
