Mother of Invention Shawl
  0 customer reviews

The Mother of Invention Shawl is a seemingly simple triangular shaped shawl with cleverly placed alternating stripes of Stockinette and reverse Stockinette on either side of the center spine. The texture has an intriguing, almost trompe l'oeil quality, especially when viewed at an angle.

The shawl is begun with a garter tab cast on and once established, a simple 8 row repeat creates the alternating raised ridges. If using more than one color, please note that color change occurs on the WRONG SIDE of the work throughout. The combination of the two textures makes for a shawl that looks much more complicated up close, but is simple and relaxing to knit.

A delicate lace edge adds the perfect finishing touch. Written and charted instructions are provided for knitting two sizes in one or two colors. This project is suitable for an advanced beginner through expert level knitter.

This meditative and peaceful knit is as much a joy to knit as it is to wear!
