Over the weekend I released my first design, a small shawl called Wave.
'Wave' is knit from the bottom up and is shaped into a wide triangle which, when thrown over the shoulders, will sit perfectly in place. The shawl is also long enough to be scrunched up and used as a light-weight scarf.
The alternating 'waves' of Turkish Lace and Garter Stitch look really nice when knit with variegated yarns (I have a real soft spot for these types of colourways!) but of course semi-solids would look wonderful too! The other great thing about these stitch patterns is that they both form a knitted fabric that is totally reversible.
Wave is a one skein project which requires a yardage of around 366 - 402 meters / 400 - 440 yards. My samples were knit using a skein of Skein Silk/Cashmere Lace and BFL Sock, both of which are variegated colours.
Wave is available as a free pattern, you can download the PDF here.
Hope you enjoy!
