Inspired by a woven hat, Bocce’s design reinterprets the weaving pattern with slip stitches for the warp threads and stripes for the weft threads. Starting with a garter stitch tab, two-row stripes are broken up by blocks of three slipped stitches. Six stitches are added on every right side row causing the shawl to grow more quickly in width than in depth. Instructions include two border options - plain or with points. Bocce can be knit with as many as ten contrast colors or as few as one, making it great for stash busting. You have lots of options to customize Bocce and make it uniquely your own.
