I ❤ this beautiful shawl by Suvi Simola! It’s a pretty, triangular, slip-stitch pattern that is a quick knit–I worked on it during car trips in between sweaters. Rachel Smith of Wool n Spinning calls these “snack” projects, and I couldn’t agree more! It was a joy to knit!
I used a skein of KnitCrate yarn for the main color and a skein of plain, undyed, merino for the slip stitch sections–it was held double with the main color to produce the effect you see.
Holding two colors together is a neat technique I have been wanting to try for a while now and I think these slip stitch motifs are the perfect place. The two colors gives some extra depth to the shawl’s mosaics. In case you’re interested, the KnitCrate yarn was Audine Wools in the “Weekend” colorway.
