This shape of this shawl is new to me. It's longer than the normal crescent shawl, so it works like a scarf, too. I can't wait for an opportunity to try it out. Sadly, we didn't have a winter this year, and it's practically summer. You can't tell, but I was dying from heat in these photos. However, next winter, I will be ready!
Though I wanted to knit mine with two high contrast colors, I think adding more colors or toning down the contrast sounds interesting too. Check out Katy's multicolored version.
What I love about this shawl is the contrast, the stripes of color and texture, and the interesting shape. I love the border too. I think this shawl would look great with my black maxi dress.
I knit this for the Grocery Girls' BFF Knit-along, for which we could knit any pattern by good friends Shannon Cook or Jane Richmond. Guys, I have a list a mile long, and I've already knit a lot of their stuff.
My other posts on this knit are here and here.
There's nothing these two have designed that I wouldn't love to knit. I'm their secret BFF.
What have you guys knit by these BFFs? And which of their patterns do you want to knit next?
