Love Ewe Baby celebrates the beauty and vibrancy of hand-dyed yarn and a one-of-a-kind LYS: Do Ewe Knit?
Karen, the owner, is known as the yarn pimp extraordinaire and her love and enthusiasm for all things yarn and color inspired me to this shawl design for the Do Ewe Knit Summer KAL 2017. It combines different textures like two-color brioche, garter stripes and seed stitch into a fun shawl!
The main part of the shawl is knit sideways on the bias in brioche stitch, short-rows in stripey garter stitch and seed stitch in the pop color lead to the brioche border. The entire shawl is surrounded by an i-cord in two-colors, for a clean and finished look and an extra color pop. You can never have too many of those!
