Sochi Kochi is a rectangle shawl featuring a double knitting technique.

There are many double knit stitches, one of which used for the shawl, is the cables on the right side and the 2x2 rib on the wrong side. I also mix it with the stockinette stitch for more whimsical texture on both sides. So each side is different, but both sides are stunningly appealing.

What a wonderful opportunity and a pleasure to work with Nicole and Cordula from DyeForYarn! The yarn is so silky and tender that it just flows without any effort, and it gives gorgeous drapes.
