The Brahmin Moth Shawl is definitely not an EASY knit, it takes concentration and a certain dedication to following the pattern. But it’s well worth it.

The pattern involves mitering, slipped stitches and picking up stitches, which makes it an Intermediate pattern. And an adventure!

Wednesday Knitting: Brahmin Moth Shawl Edition

Annie  just released a new shawl pattern designed with our beautiful ModeWerk Fingering yarn!

The Brahmin Moth Shawl  is inspired by the Owl Moth, a uniquely patterned moth seen in both North and South America. The moth often looks like there are owl eyes on the wings and back, with dark and light lines on the body for a pronounced striping effect.

 

(Take a look at some very cool images online!)

The shawl is worked as a series of large mitered squares nested on a slip-stitch edge. On small (3.25mm) needles this creates a tight, angled scarf. On larger (3.75mm) needles it can be a lovely draping shawl. The pattern is available on Ravelry for $5.00. See  this beauty in person in three different colorways this coming Saturday at Fall Fiber Festival in Hopkins, MN. Not in Minnesota? We’ll have all three samples in our booth in 2016 as we travel to different shows.
