Looking for kits? Amazing Threads has them!!! Amazing Lakes

Minnesota, the Land of Lakes was the inspiration behind this colorful shawl. Growing up I was surrounded by the glistening waters and majestic pines of Twin Cities. Although I no longer live there, Minnesota still has a piece of my heart! Dontcha know?

Amazing Lakes It is an elongated, asymmetrical triangular shawl with a curved top edge. This is a simple mosaic pattern, easy to knit even by somebody who has no experience with color work. Mosaic is one of the fun, magical color-work techniques. It looks like a lot of work, but only one color is worked at a time, and the pattern is created simply by slipping the stitches in the other color you are not working. yah, you betcha!!!
