When I first saw the Destination Unknown shawl by Cheryl Faust, it made me gasp. The subtle color changes of the Spincycle Dyed in the Wool are perfectly offset by the striking solids of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie. The gorgeous herringbone texture is achieved by the deceptively simple mosaic knitting technique. The description by the designer resonated with what a lot of us are feeling right now:
From the designer:
“Like the ever-changing direction of our journey through life, the twists and turns of the path are often a mystery. Destination Unknown celebrates this journey and encourages us to find joy in the unexpected, chase our dreams and greet each new day with excitement for the opportunities to explore and create.”
This simple top down triangular shawl uses slip stitches to create the color work, so you are only working one color per row. It’s repetitive enough to be a mindless knit, but engaging for an experienced knitter, especially as you watch the Dyed in the Wool slowly shift colors each row.
You’ll need two skeins of Dyed in the Wool and 3 skeins of Peerie for this project. The pattern is available to purchase on Ravelry.
This color combinations for this are infinite, from soft and subtle to bold and graphic. So we had our color guru, Teddy, put together some combinations to inspire you! Our complete selection of Dyed in the Wool and Peerie is available in our online shop if you’d like to put together your own.
