Knitalong ~ Dash Shawl
Please join us for our next knitalong while we knit the Dash Shawl! Trust us, knitting together is so much better than going it alone :)
The body of this shawl is knit in Sister yarn in an open stitch that is warm and cozy yet feels loose and light to wear. My favorite part about this shawl is that after you finish knitting it, you get to weave the Pixie Dust yarn in, instead of actually knitting it. It's so satisfying! The result is a gorgeous combination of textures and color that make up a completely unique shawl.
Weaving in the Pixie Dust also shines a light on the beautiful nature of this handspun yarn. It is loaded with texture, so many fibers colors (unless you pick white!) and in some cases, sparkling angelina fiber. We'll knit this shawl from the bottom up as well, so if you decide you want to customize the size to be smaller or larger, that's easy to do.
