Wassailing

Wassailing

This shawl is one of my favorite designs. It isn’t particularly clever or anything, just… so good and so me.

If you’re thinking of knitting up a Wassailing of your own, here are a few techniques used that might be outside the basic skill-set. First off, there is a bit of cabling, but nothing crazy. You’ll find pretty standard 1/1 and 2/2 cables that most everyone should be comfortable with. Next, you’ll find some bobbles (hello cute little yarn nuggets!). I hear bobble are so “in” right now, which makes me feel more dorky and outside the loop than usual for some reason. I guess I’m too busy to have my finger on the pulse of cool. Last, there is a knitted on fringe edge that is SO fun. This edge is worked as an applied edge to each end — which is the reason for the provisional cast-on — and is then unraveled to create the long loops. For the sample, I left the loops uncut however, you can certainly give yours a nice little trim. Other than that, you’ll see a bit of simple lace, lots of garter and a bit of ribbing. SO MUCH texture.

I’m so excited to have Wassailing back home in time for the weather to turn.

Find the pattern in the latest issue of Interweave Knits Gifts, 2019 or on Ravelry.

Be well, friends and happy knitting x
