Stripes and dots, silk and merino, lace and dk weights – Hoku cheerfully combines contrasting elements into a stunning shawl. It’s perfect for using up those odd skeins in your stash. The beginner-friendly design looks more complicated than it is, and uses a simple blister stitch to produce the dots. Combining contrasting yarns, such as the soft and squishy Malabrigo Rastita with shimmering silk Ito Kinu, creates the most powerful visual effect. Pattern contains a schematic and photo tutorial for the blister stitch of the dots.
Knitting for me is all about experimenting, trying new things, rediscovering old stuff and mixing everything together to create something completely new and unique. You never run out of ideas or possiblities once you have started thinking about yarn and needles like that.
I also like a challenge when I knit. I enjoy immensely to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it´s impossible to do. - Then I find a way to do it.
It is just amazing to me that I can write down my ideas at home, upload them here on Ravelry and so instantly share them with other knitters all around the world.
