Let’s settle this! An easy and relaxing knit, Settlers of Knittan is a crescent shape shawl that is simple enough to knit during an epic board game night. The hexagon garter stitch texture is inspired from the unique board for one my favorite board games, Settlers of Catan. All of the texture pattering is done on the wrong side so every Right Side row is a relaxing knit row. This and the clever chart make for a very potato chippy knit! Geometric patterns are very in style and this classic silhouette can fit into any wardrobe.

Valkyrie Fibers made some GORGEOUS kits for this shawl, the pre-order has ended but I’m guessing if you shoot her a message in her shop you can get her to dye a kit up for you! There is a colorway for each of the Setters of Catan resources, so pick your favorite!
