The BOMB POP Shawl is a triangular colorblock shawl in a simple, staggered eyelet lace pattern using fingering/sock yarn in two eyepopping colors.
BOMB POP is knit top down starting with a body of smooth stockinette eyelets and abruptly transitions into squishy garter stitch eyelets in a contrast color. The symmetrical, shallow triangle shape is achieved by adding yarn over increases on every row, and it’s finished with a stretchy but simple bind off.
Choose two super saturated, highly contrasting colors for a shawl that punches you right in the face, or tone it down with a more muted color palette. Either way, your BOMB POP Shawl cannot be ignored and will snag everyone’s attention!
NOTE This pattern has been professionally tech edited for accuracy and clarity. US knitting terminology is used throughout.
YARN REQUIRED Approx. 800 yards (731.52 m)/7 oz (200 g) fingering weight yarn
SUGGESTED YARN Two 100g skeins of fingering/sock yarn in two different colors. I used:
• 1 skein of Hedgehog Fibres Sock in Waterlily (blue) for the stockinette body, and
• 1 skein of MadelineTosh Tosh Merino Light in Neon Red (red) for the garter border
Raid your stash and mix and match solids, speckles, variegated, self-striping, semi-solids, tonals, and more. The simple eyelet stitch looks cool in all types of yarns!
