KORO KORO

コロコロ (from Japanese) - rolling, welting

This slip-stitch shawl is another relative from the family of KOKO and LOLO designs that I have created. This right-sided triangular shawl is created tip up and is worked using alternating stripes of color. All while combining basic stitches that become intuitive and repetitive as this satisfying 3D texture begins to emerge! Addictive in its nature, you won’t be able to put your needles down until it is finished, and being a DK-weight project this shawl will be knit in a blink of an eye!
