Smock It! is an exclusive pattern for the Westknits Yarn A Long 2017, a yarn and pattern club through Stephen & Penelope. This pattern will be available to download as an individual pattern in June 2018.

There are a few spaces available in this year’s club if you would like to receive the exclusively dyed colors and patterns to knit the 3 new Westknits designs. Sign up here.

This colorful shawl is knit sideways using three colors with a lovely picked up border. Fade your colors from light to dark using a striping sequence that blends the colors together. The ribbed border features yarn over accents and a smocked knitting technique that gathers stitches together. A picot bind off finishes the edge with a decorative touch. This design is super easy to knit so you can enjoy the gradual color changes and fluid drape of the fabric.
