New Design: Pleat Sleek

1

Now please understand, folks, that I haven’t always been a Shawl Knitter.

And I’m not even sure I’d say I’m really totally one yet. The things that get my heart a-pattering about designs aren’t usually found in shawls.

But, when presented with a design challenge of “make something with one hank of lovely sock weight yarn!” those creative constraints unleashed my generally bold and a bit wacky ideas.

Pleat Sleek is the result of this playful dance into the world of the shawl(ette).

This design:

  • has a weird shape that sits perfectly across your shoulders
  • includes whole lot of mesh to keep it airy
  • features a swooping garter section
  • is fantastic for all that varigaeted sock yarn I know you have!
  • takes only about 1 full hank of sock yarn
  • and perhaps best of all, a super fun section of pleats that tuck in the neckline and make the shawl sit perfectly up against your neck

You can get this pattern in my Ravelry shop here.
