piu-piu mystery K.A.L.
This pattern is also available as part of my new e-book Espiral: a progressive Eco-friendly e-book 5 original shawl designs + 1 bonus pattern (also a shawl design).
Piu-piu is an asymmetrical shawl knitted bias in one piece, starting with only a few stitches on the needles. It has a cute border and attractive lines hence to the different patterns used – lace, mock cables, textured and elongated stitches – being somehow challenged and fun – you’ll never know what you encounter next! Even though it was especially designed for beautiful variegated yarns it works well with solid colors too.
I recommend this pattern for knitters with some experience knitting shawls due to the different shape, special stitches and techniques used.
