It's been a while: I haven't published a new pattern in months!
This pattern is ready to go since ages, but I had other priorities (like wholesale orders and fairs to attend to) and I hadn't find the time to publish it until now!
My friend Cinzia sent me 2 balls of Katia Silky Lace: 80% merino, 20% silk.
The colours are shiny and bold, and the yarn is very pleasant to knit with.
2 colours means stripes.
Stipes means Fibonacci to me :)
And this mark the third pattern in my personal Fibonacci Galore!
Back to Stripes is a very simple asymmetrical shawl.
It is available in both English and Italian.
Starting from as few as 3 stitches, this shawl grows and grows, while interchanging stripes of different colours for different lengths.
It's the perfect mindless TV knitting: you sit down, fire up Netflix, and knit, paying little attention to your knitting if not to change colour.
