Now that Christmas has passed and we’re partway through Hanukkah, it’s time to think about treating ourselves and returning to the realms of selfish knitting. Enter The Italian Job by Nancy Vandivert. This beautiful two color asymmetrical shawl incorporates mosaic knitting, which is a fun colorwork technique where you only work with one color at a time. The Italian Job is designed in Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors, which has just come back in stock! Pick up two contrasting colors of this soft and squishy yarn and treat yo’ self.
- Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors Sock 75/25 (75% superwash merino/25% nylon; 460 yds/421 m) $26 – 1 skein each of two contrasting colors
- US 4 (3.5 mm) needles, 32” circular recommended
The Italian Job looks equally lovely dressed up or down. Pair with your favorite puffy winter jacket on those cold days to come. Throw it over a cute cardigan and pair of jeans when joining a friend for coffee or dress it up with slacks and a classy blazer for a day at the office.
