This pattern is part of the Do Ewe Knit Summer KAL 2017, starting June 23.
Love Ewe Baby celebrates the beauty and vibrancy of hand-dyed yarn and a one-of-a-kind LYS.
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!
The pattern will be available from June 23, even if you’re not participating in the KAL.
All yarns must be purchased at Do Ewe Knit. There are exclusive yarn kits available and you can buy them directly at the LYS in Westfield, New Jersey, or by calling the store (you can use WhatsApp to call, if you’re not local).
All shawls must be the “Love Ewe Baby” pattern and knit between 6/23/2017 – 9/1/2017. You’ll get a 20% discount on the pattern if you buy the yarn at Do Ewe Knit!
