My latest foray into shawl design is assymetric, and I'm hooked!
I wanted an easygoing wear-everywhere project for summer and this shawl was just the thing. The pattern is rhythmic and soothing and perfect for knitting in the car, at the beach, or sipping a cocktail poolside.
Knit in A Verb For Keeping Warm's gorgeous Annapurna, it's warm and soft and lightweight - the exact thing you want to throw over your shoulders when the sun goes down. And I know I'll still be wearing this with a light jacket after Summer has passed and we go into Fall.
You can easily alter the pattern for more or less stripes, add a different lace or play with size as your stash and taste dictates. You can knit this in one color, or two, or even a whole bunch of different ones (gradient?).
