Are you already (like me) imagining that moment when summer starts to let up and you can drape something woolly around your shoulders again? The precursor to actually being able to slide your arms into a real sweater? These two beauties would make for fun summer knitting and will fill that in-between gap as well as layering beautifully over sweaters and coats when the times comes—
TOP: Moon Sisters by Caitlin Hunter is a clever application of Anna Maltz’s Marlisle technique — a two-strand marl shawl with a strip of colorwork triangles running down the spine
BOTTOM: Isadora by Berroco is a sea of chunky scallop shapes formed (I believe) by nothing more than increases and decreases in chunky wool
BY THE WAY: We’ve been having a Warehouse Sale over at Fringe Supply Co. this weekend to clear out some “seconds.” We’re down to just the last few items we had the most of, but there are some killer deals to be had. Ends tonight!
PREVIOUSLY in New Favorites: Mesmerizing colorwork
I really like Moon Sisters – good pattern, excellent name, looks cozy! Unfortunately, I’m still waiting for summer (in a rather cold and rainy Nova Scotia at the moment) to arrive so I’m wishing I could wrap Moon Sisters around me now. In the meantime, I’ll add it to my “Favourites” on Ravelry.
Moon Sisters is lovely! I’m not usually a fringe fan but on some shawls it looks perfect.
This one really gets it right.
