Texture & Colour is a new sideways asymmetrical, or bias, shawl. Like 8 Simple Stripes and Lovely Eyelets, it is worked from one corner point to the opposite edge. Easy increase (kfb) and decrease (k2tog) stitches are alternated to create a soft triangular shape. Texture & Colour uses alternating garter and slipped stitch patterns with three beautiful colours.
This shawl is worked in one piece and the colours can be carried along the top edge, or cut and sewn in later. Check out this tutorial to learn more: Changing Colours When Knitting Stripes 101.
This shawl is designed in Plucky Knitter Cozy, a luscious merino and baby camel blend. The colours used here are Mums The Word (MC), Choo Choo (CC1), and Wintry Mix (CC2). A total of approximately 605 yards is required: one whole skein (260 yards) of Mums The Word, approximately 230 yards of Wintry Mix, and approximately 115 yards of Choo Choo.
