Love variegated yarn and just a wee smidge of seed stitch? Hate weaving in ends?

George Street is a shawl specifically designed to address a number of knitterly problems. It showcases a gorgeous skein of variegated yarn and does this in manageable stripes of seed stitch, a stitch many people dislike knitting but love the texture it creates. Due to the clever mesh lace edging, there are only four ends to weave in when you’re finished knitting!

Knitted on the bias, with some very simple short rows which help to elongate the shawl’s shape, George Street is a stylish addition to any knitter’s wardrobe.

The pattern includes full written instructions, photographs, a schematic and has been fully tech-edited and test knitted.

What the testers said:
“I have to say … wow!”
“I … LOVED that there are very few ends to weave in.”
“A GREAT use of simple stitches … to create an eye-catching piece of wearable art!”
“I loved making this and blocking it out was a delight”
