We knit, we partied, we might have even played a little music, and now it’s time for the full reveal of the Playin’ My Song Mystery Knit-Along Shawl!
About Playin’ My Song
The shawl begins by working a classic top-down triangle, beginning with a Garter Tab Cast-On and then increasing every right-side row. Once it’s too the desired length, the triangle ends are divided in half. Each half is then worked lengthwise on the bias.
The result is a decadent, texture-rich trapezoid shaped stole that is utterly wrappable.
