Issue 5 | Stripes: Color Pop Shawl

About the Pattern: 

​Colour Pop is a top-down, winged triangular shawl that uses a simple two-colour slip stitch pattern. The stitch is a simple combination of plain knits, purls and slip stitches. The slip stitches create coloured dots and lines that run across the length of the shawl. The tiny pops and lines of colour spaced at various intervals give a classic texture to the shawl.

The shawl is aimed at adventurous beginners who want to learn slip stitch knitting. The shawl makes for a quick knit and is just right to ward the chill off your shoulders on cool mornings and evenings.
