Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Maggia by Jessica Anderson

“Every time I would get to a textured section, my heart sang for joy while watching the textured stitches appear. There is just something soothing about the rhythm of mixing the knits and purls and watching
a predictable and expected pattern appear.” – Jessica

Modeled by the delightfully sassy Misty, our kits production and studio assistant, Maggia is a wonderfully simple design from Jessica Anderson found in our Holidays with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 3 collection. Sometimes, it’s just nice to let the knitting do all the work for you and this triangular shawl does not disappoint. The perfect beginner project, the stitches showcase the yarn with a texture that both invigorates and soothes, allowing you find joy in every slip across the needles.
