Jeanne of Battle Born Knits got to work a few months ago on a progressive shawl project for our Big Beanie Bag Subscription
! This 3-month project concluded with March's Big Beanie Bag and we love the finished result!
The design is inspired by Jeanne's love of her home state, Nevada, and her love for the squishy feel of knits and purls. Nevada is full of texture and Jeanne travels around the state as often as she can looking at our mountains, lovely desert landscapes and textured skies, knowing it's like no place else she has ever been; home means Nevada!
This shawl is worked in 3 sections as a sampler using beautiful textured stitches and is meant to be an instructional piece for newer knitters and fun for the more experienced. It would look great in tonal yarn for the entire piece, or even lightly variegated yarn.
The patterning of knits and purls together are simple, yet create such wonderful designs when mixed up a bit.
The full 3-months of this project can be found as an all-in-one-kit here
