Always in my Heart KAL

Jan 1st - Mar 5th, 2021

Join us for Unwound's final knitalong. This shawl is very versatile and suitable for an adventurous beginner. There are lots of options for customization and it can be made on any weight yarn! Choose an option below or come up with your own combo! 

Section 1 is an easy eyelet pattern and is best done in a solid or tonal yarn. 

Section 2 is a simple mosaic (slipped stitch) colorwork pattern. Always use one needle size larger for this section. The CC can be solid, tonal, speckled, or lightly variegated.

Section 3 is ribbing to keep the edge nice and neat and can be done in any style of yarn.

All estimations below assume equally sized skeins for each color. If you have more or less yarn though, feel free to modify!
