NEW PATTERN / McMilne Shawl

McMilne Shawl by Jane Richmond

Now that Knit City has come and gone I can finally share with you the secret design I was working on for the show. Fiona and Amanda had asked me if I would create a pattern to pair with one of the custom Knit City colourways. My idea was to use a bias mesh stitch to create a very simple open work shawl that used up every last inch of two skeins of yarn.

The result is a scalene triangle where each side is of a different length. I like to wear this shawl kerchief style but it's equally as lovely draped over your shoulders. I also think it would be fun to add a button to open up more possibilities.

I decided to name the shawl after Knit City's founders, the lovely ladies of Knit Social - Fiona McLean and Amanda Milne.
