I was very happy when I learnt that one of my patterns was chosen for Brown Sheep Company's mystery knit along this autumn and I am even happier that I can finally share some pictures with you. So, so hard to keep the design a secret to not spoil the fun for all the knitters how play along in the mystery knit. But now it's over, the first finished shawls were already posted on Instagram, so here it is: Swift as an Arrow.
The shawl illustrates the versatility of Brown Sheep Company’s Shepherd’s Shades yarn, utilizing the three hues within a colour gradient to mark the progress of an asymmetrical triangle shawl as it moves from light to dark or dark to light. The heavy weight yarn combined with easy to work lace and mosaic stitch patterns contribute to a swift and enjoyable knit even for less experienced knitters.
The shawl is an asymmetrical triangular shawl knitted on the bias from one top corner towards one of the long sides. The colour blocks feature an easy to memorize lace stitch pattern, reminiscent of rows filled with arrowheads. Utilizing a three-colour gradient amplifies the design of the shawl. Knitters can choose for their shawl to progress from light to dark or dark to light. The colour blocks are connected with stripes in mosaic knitting technique. This technique is worked with one colour at a time.
