Make Anew Pattern by Maddie Harvey
This spring, join me on a knitting adventure where we’ll knit something anew, merging the familiar with the unfamiliar to create a fresh spring-inspired shawl. Combine colours that are new to you with those you’re accustomed to knit a beautiful shawl using well-known techniques alongside a unique construction. Make anew.
Make Anew is knitted in three sections beginning with the middle portion, which features stripes of textured lace alternated with garter stitch. As well as being very moreish to knit, this striped patterning results in a beautiful scalloped edge along the midpoint of the shawl
Along one edge of this first section, stitches are picked up to begin the shawl’s second part, which is a garter stitch portion. This relaxing segment is transected by gorgeous columns of slipped stitches, with a decreasing stitch count, which finishes in an elegant point.
Lastly, stitches are picked up along the remaining side of section one, and worked in stripes once more. This last section is a comfortable knit, as the stripes not only create a pleasing mirrored effect with the initial section, but the repetition of the patterning is so familiar as to become an easy-going knit. The finishing touch is added with a simple edging worked along both long sides of the shawl.
