Pattern Description:

I had some beautiful Madelinetosh DK yarn that was destined to become a shawl, but how to use these 2 contrasting yet coordinating colors. Weeks of swatching led to this simple yet striking design. I asked my friends to name it and Boardwalk was the winning name.

A great pattern for two contrasting colors of yarn. The striped border is reminiscent of our local boardwalk. The border is knit first, then stitches are picked up along one edge to knit the body. Short rows are used to create the graceful shaping.

Every technique is clearly explained: increasing, decreasing, short rows and picking up stitches.

Included in the pattern are photos, a complete list of abbreviations, a stitch glossary and schematic.

My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
