Scoop: The shape-shifter 💡
Does your handknit wardrobe include a shape-shifter yet?
Every knitter needs one. A piece that goes from shawl to cowl to poncho to sweater with a simple sleight of hand.
Andrea Mowry’s Everyway Shawl is our dream shape-shifting piece…a quick-to-make exercise in movement and color that keeps your eyes moving across stripes and angles.
💡Drape it around your back and over your arms as a cozy stole
💡Belt it for a sweater look
💡Button up the top sides and pull it over your head as a poncho
💡Button half of the side buttons and wrap it twice around your neck like a cowl
💡Lay it over your lap for some extra warmth on a cool morning as you sip tea.
💡Button all of the side buttons and use it as a nursing drape!
For her Everyway Shawl, Loops Trooper Karen chose four colors in Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co. Merinolux Aran- a plush, oh-so-soft 100% Superwash Merino.
Karen used 1 skein of Bougainvillea, 1 Spanish Moss, 1 Honey, and 3 skeins of Ivory. To get the most out of the yarn and use only 3 ivory, she shortened the middle ivory section and worked on Size 9 and 10 needles.
Here’s what Karen had to say about her Everyway:
“The yarn is super soft and squishy. I loved knitting it because it worked up really fast on the big needles! There was enough variety to keep it interesting, but it was simple enough for car knitting without the pattern. It’s like a super-cute blanket to snuggle up in when the AC gets too intense.”
“I like how it can be worn so many different ways. It has buttons along one end, and also on the side, so it can be adjusted however you want it.”
Your Loops-exclusive Everyway kit includes 4 skeins of Ivory, 1 skein of Bougainvillea, 1 skein of Spanish Moss and 1 skein of Honey. Plus details of Karen’s mods.
