Glide is a bias triangle shawl that incorporates the look of embroidered flowers on a sea of simple knit stitches by using the innovative technique of Assigned Pooling.

Assigned Pooling occurs when a change in stitch and texture is assigned to changes in color within a skein of variegated yarn. Stockinette Stitch is assigned to the main color to create a smooth backdrop for the floret cluster stitch assigned to the accent color.

Glide is a slightly smaller version of my original Float shawl. It’s knit flat in just two skeins of variegated yarn engineered to work with Assigned Pooling.
