Sitting by the winter fire, knitting this shawl while listening to a Bon Jovi cd, I felt calm and happy. This is knitting I thought, creating joy, comfort and warmth with every stitch. Hence the Lost Highway Shawl was born.

This is a soothing winter knit, creating a piece either using up nuggets from your stash or specially selected colours that you feel good in. I hope you enjoy knitting Lost Highway as much as I enjoyed designing it!

Construction: Lost Highway is an asymmetrical shawl knit sideways with 8 ply/DK yarn.

There are three sections, each section increasing eyelet lace and garter stripes. It is an easy to remember, meditative yet fun knit. Have fun playing with colours, seeing how you can use those nuggets in your stash x
