I learned to knit at the tender age of eight, and there was no stopping me. I spent decades knitting all kinds of garments for family and close friends. In 2005, I opened the online yarn shop Whitknits.com, and more recently started publishing my own patterns. Please contact me with any questions. Thank you!View all patterns by designer (19) »
High Street Shawl borrows many of the same techniques found in Eden Prairie, but with a different result. High Street is a garter stitch modular shawl in three to ten colors of fingering weight yarn. It's a great pattern for stash busting since the first six colors require 25 yards or less. You can make it as colorful or subdued as you want or even pick a color changing yarn for the small diamonds. This is a fun knit, fairly quick and easy, no purling, and it busts some stash!
