An easy entree into the world of top-down shawls, Embossed Lines uses the textures of stockinette and reverse stockinette to show off the beauty of a hand-dyed sock yarn. A bit of lace in the form of yarnover increases and an eyelet edging add lightness. When your ends are woven in carefully, you will end up with a piece that is fully reversible.
To knit this pattern, you will need to know how to:
- do a provisional cast on and pick up stitches along a garter border (for the garter tab),
- knit and purl when working flat,
- do yarnovers,
- do simple decreases (k2tog), and
- do twisted decreases (k2tog tbl -- used only for a stretchy bind off).
A photo tutorial for doing the garter tab is included with the pattern.
Please note: The yarn colorway used in the sample is no longer available. Should you wish to use the same yarn, the Drizzle colorway is a good substitute.
