About Skipping Shawl Free Knitting Pattern
About The Skipping Shawl Free Knitting Pattern by Katrina Walser
This expansive, heart-shaped shawl is a study in how gorgeous simple stitches can be when paired with amazing colours. The main stitch pattern is made up of short repeats which you'll have memorised in no time, and results in a wonderful all-over texture that perfectly highlights the colour changes in the gradient. A calming, meditative knit, it's as lovely to knit as it is to wear.
