In this Knit-A-Long, we will offer a choice of two shawl patterns; different but both great designs.
Exordium by Rebecca Picoult is a full sized shawl that is full of interesting texture and eyelets. It starts with just two stitches and grows into an asymmetrical triangle that drapes perfectly when wrapped around your neck and shoulders. Sections of relaxing garter stitch are paired with stripes and lace sections to keep things interesting.
Your favorite speckled and variegated fingering weight yarns will work especially well with this design. Choose two colors with a lot of contrast or two colors that blend together – both options will be beautiful.
Storm by Joji Locatelli is a smaller shawl with fascinating open-weave texture and a crescent shape. It uses just one skein of fingering weight yarn. It features dramatic dropped stitches and short rows that give this pattern a de-constructed look while also giving you more shawl for the same yardage.
