Backsplash is a fun triangle shawl knit sideways and filled with texture. The design plays with simple elegant chevrons mimicking my very own new backsplash!

This new shawl is from the suggestion of one of my test knitters- Purlificknitter. I chose Malabrigo Mechita, a yarn she uses frequently, to perfectly match and elevate this design.

Backsplash was designed after the beautiful part of my home remodel a “6 to 8-week job” – which is finally complete after the 20th week!!! YAY!!!!

Although simple to make, the finished result is quite stunning. An easy textured stitch pattern allows using any kind of yarn. Try it with speckled, semi-solid, gradient, yarn with shorter or longer color changes - even choose variegated yarn for this pattern. You can see all the incredible ways my test knitters used color to personalize their own creations here!

I used: Malabrigo Mechita
Main Color: Natural -840 yards
Coordinating Color: Plomo -120 yards

Needles: US 5/3.75mm 32” circular needles

Notions: Stitch Markers, T-pins and blocking wires for blocking

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches in Garter Stitch after blocking. Although gauge is not crucial for this project, it will affect the finished size and yarn requirements. A looser gauge will result in the use of more yarn.

Finished size: 27” deep x 86” tip to tip after blocking.

A giant THANK YOU to my super fun and very talented test knitters!!!
