It’s been a super productive fall, and it’s not over yet! Here’s the latest off my needles.
Lucky Star is a crescent hug of garter stitch stripes, interspersed with an intriguing star stitch. The shawl is knit from the top down, then finished with Old Shale lace for a scalloped edge. Designed to use mini skeins in coordinating colors, you can knit a rainbow, or a subtle gradient shift. You can use fewer, larger mini skeins, if that’s what you have. You could even use a continuous gradient cake. The garter stitch makes this a most meditative knit…or a multi-tasker’s dream.
This gradient version is knit with 2 Knitted Wit Sixlet gradient packs in Carbon, and a skein of Victory Sock in Pollen. Thank you to Knitted Wit for the beautiful yarn!
This rainbow version is knit with a single rainbow Sixlet pack, and a skein of Victory Sock in Box of Macarons.
Test knitter Ann knit hers with a gradient set with more yardage. Lovely!
This design uses my new Better Garter Tab Cast On for Top Down Crescent Shawls.
