Squaropolis by Maxim Cyr
There’s nothing square about this hip new shawl from designer Maxim Cyr. With a generous size and all-over checkerboard motif, this cool shawl design perfectly shows off the color changes of Spincycle Dyed in the Wool. And don’t be intimidated by the colorwork! This design uses mosaic knitting, an easy technique where you are only working with one color and “slipping” the other to create the pattern. The pattern included written instructions and a chart.
The yarnistas are dreaming of casting on this shawl (and pairing it with their favorite old school Vans) in Spincycle Dyed in the Wool paired with the super soft Di Gilpin Lalland! This Scottish lambswool DK has beautiful heathered shades. Plus, we just got new colors!
