Books and Bridges by Christine Snellman

This Pattern was designed by one of our wonderfully talented customers - Christine!

This asymmetrical shawl has  stockinette/garter sections - these represent bridges. Then, the shawl finishes with a brioche lace design that represents pathways intertwining and shooting forth to parts unknown. This shawl starts at the corner and increases at the end of right side rows. This pattern also includes a Brioche Picture Reference Guide for all the brioche stitches used in the pattern.

Exploration Station by Stephen West

This top down semi-circle shawl begins with our favorite Westknits shortcut rows and yarn overs followed by two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, stripes, and finally a beautiful chevron border. Choose 4 colors of yarn and enjoy the playful knitting journey! Stop by to see our sample today. Shown here with 3 skeins of Rita Mae Fingering.

All Points South by Casapinka

“All Points South” drapes down over your shoulders to some degree but not necessarily fit all the way over your shoulders as a poncho would. You can wear it bunched up like a cowl or more flat - it will magically hit you just right and fold over itself/ruche up to keep you toasty. It will look more poncho-y on some and more cowl-y on others depending on shoulder and bust size.

It is top down, seamless, with a “V.” There are a variety of stitches to keep it interesting and it is designed for solids, speckles, variegated or a combination of all three.
