Sagittate means “arrow” in latin, and this lovely, summery scarf is a big fluffy arrow of awesomeness. Mix two colors to create your own sagittation.
Pure, unadulterated, neon-tinted pleasure. That’s what this shawl gave me, soup to nuts. From deciding to put these two colors together to the rhythm of the Tweedy Sections to the leafy lace sections to the brick-y border, I smiled my way through this piece, and once it was done, found myself sighing and saying, “That’s the ticket…”
One day I was playing around with a deep blue skein of sock yarn and a wee rainbow set of minis. I inserted a rainbow into the middle of the garter-y sweep of a boomerang shawl, and could literally hear my rainbow-loving heart go pitter-patter. Now all I want to do is make Rainbow Boomerangs, other projects be damned. Want …
Sometimes, you just need a knitterly palate-cleanser. A project that is simple enough to work on whenever you have a spare moment, but enjoyable to bring into existence. There’s nothing like a simple, textured shawl in a lovely, rustic yarn to give you that project-reset. Mix and match two colors in a DK-weight yarn to create a Rustic Reset of …
I started this shawl pairing two lovely yarns and a nebulous idea. The rhythm is so soothing, and the resulting shawl so snuggly, I just had to share it with my newsletter list. I hope you enjoy the reading of my newsletter and the knitting of the shawl as much as I enjoy creating both of them.
Inspired by the beauty that surrounds us in our National Parks, the Touring Set was born. Choose your favorite National Park color OR the one you most want to visit. Spend the cold weather plotting your trip and knitting this fun set from the comfort of your own couch!
Friendship is magic, and so is this shawl. The shape and colorplay are reminiscent of the horn gracing the forehead of the world’s sauciest unicorn. You can use one color or two for the garter sections, and all eight Knitted Wit unicorn colors or one sparkly skein of unicorn goodness for the mesh sections.
Let me tell you a story. It’s the story of a love affair one knitter had with some yarn in her stash. She loved this yarn so very much, but couldn’t figure out exactly what it wanted to be. Until, that is, that yarn found its perfect complement. The rest is shawl-story (like history, only shawlier).
This yarn is so squishy, so wooly, so fabulous, that it just begged to be something classic and fun. It called for garter stitch, and a lot of it. I added in a bit of beady slipped stitches, an on-the-bias rectangular shape, and the result is the ideal wrap-yourself-in-wooly-goodness wrap for fall, winter, and beyond. Add a saucy shawl pin, …
This shawl is the epitome of knitterly self-care: all of the sections have a rhythm you can really get into; it’s a great excuse to pair two complementarily lovely colors; the yarn is domestic, soft, gorgeous, and bouncy; and the final object is a big hug of a shawl, perfect for snuggling under after a day spent resisting and persisting.
On our way home from a few days visiting family on the Southern Oregon Coast (and hiding from record-breaking heat in Portland), we stopped at a coastal wayside named after a local woman named Muriel O. Ponsler where we looked for agates, splashed in the ocean, and shot photos of this delightfully bright and fun shawl. In my very casual …
Not only was this shawl the most deliciously delightful thing to knit, but I’m pleased as punch with how it all came together. I hope you find a deliciously pleasing combination for your own Punch Bowl Shawl.
