This is a deceptively simple knit - soothing stocking stitch, with bursts of a moss stitch stripe adding a little excitement. It’s a perfect knit for holidays, knit-nights and long train journeys, and for those times when a spot of comfort-knitting is called for.
Use it to showcase that perfect mini-skein set, or to tame that incredibly bright skein - or make all those ends of sock yarn into something new and amazing!
The pattern calls for 200g of the main colour. For the contrasting stripes you can use a set of five 20g mini-skeins or a single 100g skein. Yarn quantities are also given for each individual stripe if you’d like to construct your own gradient from your scrap pile.
The version of the shawl show here is made in Baa Ram Ewe Pip Colourwork, 8 25g balls of the main colour and 1 25g each of the 5 contrast colours.
