Description

These shawls are the latest design from one of our employees here at Jimmy Beans, Chris! They are the Echo Strike shawls, and they are just stunning! The 2-color version is knit in Madelinetosh DK (in Glazed Pecan and Denim) and is slightly smaller than the 3-color version which uses Cascade 220 (in Soft Sage #9602, Charcoal #8400, and Straw #4010.) The 3-color version is also knit on larger needles for extra drape. Both of these shawls are absolutely stunning and look super fun to knit! Here is what Chris had to say about his pattern:

'Echo Strike is a top down, half circular shawl. Simple and adventurous, basic increases form the body and the wingspan, and contrasting intarsia striping gives the pattern texture and a visual aesthetic. Use DK weight yarn on US 6 needles for a warm and squishy wrap, or for a larger and drapier wrap, use sport weight yarn on US 8 needles. Take it up a notch and stripe the main body for a tri-color adventure!'

You can buy your copy of the Echo Strike shawl pattern in Chris' Ravelry Store!
