This pattern is only available as part of a kit from Eweknit. Toronto.

The Bias Shawl (an accidental name that we are sticking with now since we printed all the patterns with it! Oops), designed by Eweknit’s Claudia Q is the perfect portable knitting project for on-the-go knitters. It is simple to make, yet will keep you engaged from cast on to bind off with it’s changing stripe and textured stitch patterns. It’s knit up in our favourite Shibui yarns Pebble and Silk Cloud held together to create a fabric that is both soft and airy.

This pattern is available as a kit from Eweknit, and includes all the yarn you need to make the shawl as well as the printed pattern instructions.

Pattern Notes
Worked in a strand of light fingering yarn held together with a strand of mohair, this shawl is knit on the bias and begins at the bottom corner, increasing at each side to create a triangle. The main body of the shawl is worked using increases and decreases to create biasing lines. The shawl is then decreased to the opposite corner. When pattern indicates a colour change, join yarn at side of work leaving a tail to be woven in. When working stripe sequences that have less than 2 rows between colour changes, loosely carry yarns up the back side of work rather than breaking yarn for each colour change. For stripe sequences of more than 2 rows between colour changes, break yarn leaving a tail, and weave in at the end or as you go.
