Cally’s shawl designs are a wonderful introduction to mosaic knitting, possibly the easiest colorwork technique out there. Mosaic involves simply slipping stitches – no carrying or twisting strands of different colors. The photos above illustrate how much difference color choice and placement can make. Be sure to look at the Ravelry projects posted for Cally’s designs for color ideas and inspiration.
Keep an eye on Cally Monster, folks. From following Cally on Instagram, I know she has beautiful new designs waiting in the wings. You’ll always be able to purchase her patterns at GYI, where you’ll also find her beloved Baah La Jolla merino fingering yarn. For a limited time, save 15% on 2 or more skeins of La Jolla.
There’s still time to jump in the KAL, which ends November 18. If you finish by the deadline, you’ll be eligible to win a KAL prize. But if you don’t, you’re still a winner: you will have saved on your pattern (thanks again, Cally!), your La Jolla yarn, and you will have an AMAZING shawl whenever you cast off.
Isn’t seeing the same pattern in different yarns an eye-opener? Just this week Brigid brought in her completed Old Shale Waves from designer Carrolldj.
If you’re catching a whiff of peppermint candy canes, it’s by design; this sweet baby blanket is going to a December arrival. Now compare Brigid’s to our shop sample of the same pattern:
Quite a difference! Same pattern, even the same yarn, our dear (machine washable) Berroco Vintage Chunky. With our autumn temperatures finally starting to notice the calendar, who wouldn’t love a quick and easy throw? What colors would you choose?
