The Collective Shawl

1 SKEIN + LEFTOVERS DESTASH!

 

This shawl was born during a live conversation with the knitting community. 
I asked for advice and opinions and together we came up with this beautiful, collective shawl for me to work on.

One of my favorite things to do is interact with the community of knitters. I understand it is not as easy as it used to be, there is so much to watch and so much to pay attention to throughout the day… but I am lucky I still get to share my videos on youtube and chat with viewers. 
During one of those videos, a live one, I mentioned I wanted to start a new design/project and, together with everyone watching, I realized for a long time I’ve wanted to design something that:

  • is a one skein project (most people have so many of these!)
  • used leftovers (and these!)
  • uses some basic brioche stitch. An entry level project for those who want to try it. This collective shawl fits all the bills, plus it’s a really fun project to knit with an irregular triangle shape.

Knitted from tip to tip, it alternates bands of brioche (switching the color dominance at the center) and garter stitch.
