Asymmetrical Shawl Pattern
Asymmetrical Shawl

The Asymmetrical Striped Shawl begins at the narrow end with wide stripes of color that get thinner as the shawl grows. A simple garter rib stitch adds a little interest to the body without over shadowing the stripes of color. The asymmetrical shape is created with different rates of increase on each side, and then it is finished off with simple lace edge. It is knit holding two strands together making it super cozy and warm for the wintertime, plus it knits up super-fast! Knit it using Blue Sky Alpacas 100% Sport for a wonderfully soft and squishy shawl, or Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk for a little bit of luxury!
Sample shown uses one Blue Sky Alpacas gift box in Cypress.

Modicum Hat

The Modicum Hat uses one Madelinetosh DK Tea Cake sampler (hat shown is in Mojito Mint Green). This pattern is included with the purchase of a DK Tea Cake - or use up the leftover bits of DK weight yarn in your stash! They look gorgeous in tonal colors, or try a brightly colored rainbow! Each stripe requires approximately 7 yards, and there are a total of 22 stripes. The simple color work stripes are a great introduction to stranded knitting and the pattern is very easy to memorize! The result is a super cozy, slightly slouchy hat. See the matching mitts below with the TML Tea Cakes.
