One size – approximately 23″ deep x 74″ wide (58.5 cm x 188 cm).
When asked to design a mini skein shawl for the Toad Hollow ladies, I knew it would be fun and challenging. With 24 minis to use, making a striped design seemed a great plan but how to keep it cohesive becomes part of a designer’s creative process. But it can’t be too crazy with all those different mini colors screaming to be the star of the show.
I like symmetry so no wacky or wild side steps here. Just a little bit of fun on an edge stitch you may not have knit before. And several wearing options with two I-cords which are woven in and out from bottom to top and cinched a little (or a lot) and tied to make for easy wearing at the elbow or to hold the shawl in place as you go about your day. Maybe a simple aesthetic to show off all the color? … well, here you go, easy peasy, colorful knitting in two sample palettes that will shine no matter how you mix it up. Go for the utterly scrappy version and use every color in the rainbow; use gradient mini packs OR just skeins of sock yarn from your stash in a palette you love to wear.
