this pattern was been chosen as the winning design for the 2014 manitoba fibre festival knit-a-long, hosted by wolseley wool.
there is nothing better on a hot summer day than an ice cream cone. whether it’s mint chocolate chip or sorbet, waffle cone or bowl, gluten-free or dairy-free, there is an ice cream cone out there for everyone. and this shawl can work for everyone too! one colour, stashbuster, one-skein wonder or gigantic, the options just keep going…
this shawl is designed to use one or two skeins of fingering weight yarn. there are instructions given for working it in either one or two colours, although the multiple sections could certainly work as a stashbuster as well. the sections are worked alternately in slipped stitches and a simple lace design, with welts separating each section and a picot bind off along the bottom edge.
knitting skills used: slipped stitches, yarn overs, k2tog, knit, purl, kfb increase, picot bind off
