Fall weather is coming! So excited for the changing of the seasons because that means shawl weather is coming! My newest shawl was inspired by Little Bits which is an asymmetric triangle shawl featuring slip stitches. A Little Bit More (clever right) is a top down triangle shawl that also features slip stitches and a striped border.
A Little Bit More uses a main color that highlights a complimentary set of contrast colors, they could be leftovers, a gradient or self striping yarn, or a mini skein kit. I used a single ply 100% Merino yarn from Lavender Lune Yarns and it was so nice to knit with. Sometimes a single ply can be a bit splitty but I didn't find that with this one.
My newest shawl features lots of garter stitch and is very easy to memorize, perfect as a take along project. As I was knitting the shawl body I felt that it needed a bit more at the ending the original concept did, Little Bits has fun and unique shaping, A Little Bit More also needed a pop. The stripes as the end follow the same color sequence as the contrast colors in the body really pulling all the colors together.
I would recommend knitting this shawl with any fingering weight yarn you are comfortable wearing around your neck, a merino or single ply base isn't necessary. Have fun watching ever little blip of color come along as you knit your shawl up!
