Knit: Range Shawl

MakingLiz TubmanComment

This project was a total win on all fronts.  I tried a new-to-me yarn, a new method of shawl construction, and color combinations picked out during a late night internet browsing session.  The yarn is Plucky Knitter Trusty, a small batch dyed 100% merino wool, that completely lives up to its name.  It's dreamily soft and knits up quickly with wonderful stitch definition. The Range Shawl from Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits is a wonderfully textured asymmetrical shawl, so you start with three stitches and work longer and longer rows, increasing as you go until it's time to cast off.  I really enjoyed knitting this way, steadily increasing while working small sections of texture; it never got boring!   This pattern was also my first time knitting brioche; this stitch is super fun to knit and gives you an extra squishy and colorful rib section.  I love the way the brioche helps transition between colors; these sections give the shawl a cool ombre effect.  After casting off, the finished shawl is a great big size perfect for wearing like a scarf!
