Giant Steps

This pattern is available for $6.00 USD buy it now

A 2-colour scarf/wrap or shawl that is knitted from end to end. It features simple intarsia-style colourwork with easy cable & lace patterning and funky fringes.

It is a versatile pattern that can be worked using any weight of yarn. It features a basic method of intarsia colourwork, that allows different yarn colours to run side by side. The beauty of this is that there is no carrying up separate yarn bobbins and no cutting and weaving-in lots of ends.

You can modify the pattern to your heart’s content by:
• changing the fringes to your own choice of edging styles,
• combining solids colour yarns with variegated yarns, or even
• mixing and matching different yarn types!

Explore your creative side!

Gauge is not important, as it is freeform knitting.

Try cabling without a cable needle! It’s easier than you think and so much faster! See this tutorial
