I recently realised that most of my shawl patterns were quite difficult and only attract experienced knitters. So this time I set out to design a nice easy knit. Wise Women Wear Purple is the result. It is worked flat and is knitted point to end from written instructions.
It's an asymmetric triangular shawl in two colours and features a textured pattern of reverse stockinette and vertical twisted-rib ridges together with large volumes of simple garter stitch, perfect for TV knitting.
It would look great in any yarn, but has been designed to showcase one solid and one variegated yarn, and I would like testers to stick to this combination, although you don't need to use the same yarn as me.
I hope you choose to knit this. It's already a favourite in my wardrobe, perfect for a cool summer evening.
