Issue 5 | Stripes: Slow Exposure Shawl

About the Pattern: 

This is a deceptively simple knit – soothing stocking stitch, with bursts of a moss stitch stripe adding a little excitement. It’s a perfect knit for holidays, knit-nights and long train journeys, and for those times when a spot of comfort-knitting is called for.

The contrast of the purple pop in mohair as particularly effective, or you could use it to showcase that perfect mini skein set, or to make something amazing with all those ends of sock yarn!
