Hi Folks!

Thanks for checking out the Artefact shawl! This large shawl is a relaxing knit composed of a few different techniques. Slipping stitches while alternating colors creates long, smooth vertical lines. These lines then extend into textured, ribbed columns followed by a lattice of raised and crossed stitches. This shawl is a great opportunity to show off two complimentary colors you’ve been saving for something special. It knits up fast and is a perfect project to work on while multi-tasking. Whether you are knitting it for yourself, a friend, or a family member, the future recipient is bound to love it!

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Reach out! I’ll do my best to respond back as quickly as I can. If I don’t get back to you right away, please forgive me! I probably have my nose buried in a book for grad school.

I’d like to give Artisanthropy a special shout-out for providing the yarn for the design! If you are ever in Cobourg, Ontario, check out this cute little shop downtown. They have a great selection of yarn, including the Black Lamb brand shown here.
