Co-op: cooperation
Knitting is always cooperation: between yarn and needles, mind and body, real life and imagination, pattern and project, maker and receiver, and ……..

A shawlette worked in an easy slip-stich pattern to create the length of it. Afterwards stitches are picked up and worked in stockinette from the side of the shawlette to create a contrast line, and waves are worked for a beautiful edge.

The shawlette is approx. 210cm/2y in length and 26cm/10.25” wide after wet blocking.

The sample shown is worked with 2 strands of yarn.
510m/560y of fingering weight merino yarn Anina from Filcolana 420m/460y for 100g
510m/560y of Drops kid-silk yarn/ or Tilia from Filcolana 880m/960y for 100g

MC: 250m/275y off-white merino yarn held together with an off-white kid-silk yarn

Other yarns can be used, but keep in mind that using other yarn qualities might lead to a different overall look of the shawlette. It can also affect the amount of yarn needed, if you knit the shawlette longer and wider.

We work together
While visiting Marianne at her beautiful place in Avignon, we went sightseeing, and at a small craftsman shop we saw a shawl hanging outside the shop.
Gaby asked:
„Can this woven pattern be worked with needles?“
Marianne and I answered:

I’m working the pattern (Denmark)
Gaby is taking the pictures and being creative with layout (Germany), Sue has done the tech-edit (USA)
Marianne (France), Ulla (Denmark), Anita (Sweden), Heleen (Holland), Tash (Australia), Corien (Holland), Susanne (Germany), Ina (Denmark), Brita (Sweden), Stine (Denmark), Sabine (Germany), Åsa (Sweden), Shawn (USA), Eva (Norway), Geke (Holland), Patricia (Germany), Alexa (USA) have test-knitted beautiful versions of CO-OP.

Thank you so much girls!!
