Knitter Extraordinaire: Joy (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Combined elements of two different shawls into one new shawl! Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: It sounds complicated to combine two different shawl patterns, but Joy did it brilliantly and made lots of common sense decisions to make the process easier. She began with one shawl pattern (starting with Dissent), and, knowing that the tricky part in combining patterns has to do with stitch number variances, didn’t worry about the exact stitch count. This worked brilliantly as much of the increasing was done in garter stitch, so it gave her more control over making it the size she wanted. When she was ready, she then switched to Misty Meadow, to knit the beautiful lace border. Doesn’t it look fantastic? There are so many great striping shawl patterns out now, wouldn’t it be interesting to try your hand at combining one with a different shawl pattern, and see what stunning new shawl you could knit up?
