The design for Clint was inspired by the ancient art of quilting, transformed into a modern, wearable shawl. Clints color options are endless, allowing for bold contrasts or subtle harmonies to express your creativity. Each block is knit modularly, attaching to the main body as you go, simplifying construction and making it portable and manageable for on-the-go knitting.
Knit entirely in garter stitch, this project suits most skill levels. The rhythmic garter stitch provides a soothing knitting experience, while the modular construction keeps it engaging and fun.
Unleash the artist within you, and create a unique heirloom piece that reflects your personal style!

CONSTRUCTION
Clint is a large boomerang-shaped shawl, constructed modularly to eliminate the need for seaming. You will start with the center Modular Star Pattern, working blocks individually and attaching them seamlessly while you knit.
After the center piece is completed, you will pick up stitches at the upper and lower edge of the center piece. Next, you will pick up stitches for the sideways worked wings of your shawl.
You will proceed by finishing the upper edge of your shawl with an attached I-cord, followed by picking up stitches to work the lower scalloped edge.
