Today we bring you the latest lovely pattern from Loop! Juju has designed yet another stunner – and in true Juju form it’s as clever as it is beautiful. Knit side to side, it’s a crescent shaped, garter stitch shawl with a charming wavy border and i-cord edging worked all in one piece. It’s a feat of short-row engineering that’s perfect whether you’re a long time lover of short rows or brand new to the technique.
It’s designed to work in either 4ply (fingering) or sportweight yarn – so there’s lots of options! The large version in blue is Shilasdair Luxury 4ply (the blue pictured is currently sold out but more is on the way) and the lovely grey version above is Skein Merino Silk Sport in Outlaw. The 4ply version is larger, taking 4 skeins of Shilasdair, and the sportweight in Skein version is smaller, using just one skein.
The best part is, you can use as much or as little yarn as you like – because it’s knit from side to side in one piece, if you weigh your yarn before you start knitting, once you get to the middle section you can check to see how much yarn you have and choose your own ‘halfway’ point.
The top edge of the shawl also has a clever little detail – an i-cord finish – so you will undoubtedly find this an entertaining knit and maybe even learn a new technique! Charm is now available in print from our online shop or in-store. We can’t wait to see all the beautiful versions you come up with!
