Magmatic BOOM takes a stitch I developed for the Magmatic MKAL and applies it to a boomerang shaped shawl. The chevron stitch with elongated stitches and placed beads that zig-zag within the pattern is too much fun!

This pattern was designed to use either a skein of gradient yarn or a self-made magic ball and make the most of it by using almost the entire skein. I made one with Fiber Optics Paintboxes… which are addictive, but hard to come by, and one with a magic ball with yarns from stash!

Directions are included for making a magic ball, placing beads, if you’d like, and how to work with elongated stitches!

Video tutorials are included to help with new techniques.

Magmatic BOOM is available individually or at a discount as a part of a serialized e-Book about my knitting addiction Just One More.
