Rip Curl Shawlette Now Available to All!

This shawlette was originally part of Twisted's Shawlette Club and was released last year. Technically I think it was "available to all" through Twisted already... but now it's available through me ;-)






Rip Curl has an usual shape- an asymmetrical curl like a cresting wave. Though it seems odd, it wears like a charm- you can wrap it twice and use the little curly end as a hook to help keep it on! The sample was knit with a gradient set from Hazel Knits, in their delicious "Entice" yarn... but you can of course make it solid or striped, in any fingering-weight yarn you please. Slipped stitch "spines" and "bones" stick out from the garter stitch background to add a little extra geometric intrigue. 






(yeah it's upside-down here. I'm a champ. But hey, always nice to have a good-looking wrong-side.) 




You can find Rip Curl on Ravelry here, or:

  1. A good-looking wrong side can never be understated. I don't think enough scarfy, shawly people consider that when they design.

    1. Garter stitch'll never let you down! It's tricky though- so many lovely stitch patterns are based on stockinette. One reason why I'm quite fond of hats ;-)

  2. Dang, you are one foxy lady (in a wistful, flower-of-the-English-countryside sort of way...). Love the shawl, too, girl.

    1. Haha, I don't think anyone's ever called me a wistful flower before. OH YOU.
