Knit PDF - Over The Top Shawl
I learned to knit in the round decades ago and I absolutely adore it. The round and round we go rhythm gets me into the zen of Fair Isle knitting. And besides, I'm not a fan of purling.
The Over the Top Shawl is worked in the round with a steek. The shawl begins with a fun bobbled border, stripes, and mini Fair Isle design. Then the zen begins with a graphic diamond design worked over several inches. The shawl is finished with the same stripe it began with and bound off with a bobbled edge. Lastly the steek is cut and the steek stitches are unraveled. Groups of steek yarn ends are tied in an overhand knot to create a sturdy edge.
This design was originally published in my book Color By Kristin by Sixth and Spring in 2009.
