I talk about Striped Bolting and share a teaser of another Summer Stripes shawl from my home studio in Amsterdam here…

Lookout for more Knit Stars information in the coming weeks. It’s an awesome online summit with 8 other fabulous designers sharing their favorite techniques and a glimpse into their creative workspaces. I’ll be sharing my Westknits shorcut rows, modular knitting method, and 2-color brioche along with several other tips and tricks. In the meantime, enjoy the free promotional videos leading up the summit launch.

This top-down geometric shawl is knit with four colors. Yarn over increases zig and zag to create the large expansive shape. Each section offers a new stitch pattern for an exciting knitting experience. Garter stitch stripes, slipped stitches, seed stitch, and eyelet rows decorate the fabric. The signature Westknits shaping style is super versatile to wear. Wrap it like a scarf or drape it over your shoulders like a poncho and rock this dramatic statement piece.
