Kinsley shawlPetra Breakstone
Don’t you just love bulky yarn and therefore super quick projects? The triangular shaped Kinsley shawl really delivers and is a joy to knit and in the end wear. Knitted in just one day as I couldn’t put it down. The shawl starts out with a garter tab cast on and increases steadily for the upper part of the shawl. Moving into gleefully simple garter stitch striping, whilst changing color combos to give your piece a bit more drama.
Using two yarns in different weights and colors held together throughout this project lend an interesting look.
