Patternum Novum: Itineris

About a month ago, I posted about a new shawl I was releasing exclusively through Knit Culture Studio for Yarn Crawl LA. Well, I'm pleased to say that the time has now come for Itineris to be released into the wild...


Itineris Shawl - $5 via Ravelry (no account required)



Itineris is a triangular garter stitch shawl with a simple but striking stripe pattern. This is hardly a new concept, but what makes Itineris different is its unique construction. The shawl starts out as one single stitch that grows and turns to form interesting intersections and angles. I knit most of the grey and bright pink one while on Christmas vacation and found it to be great, soothing project that I could work on even while chatting with my in-laws or getting my son to stop messing with the ornaments and lights.
