It’s a fabulous modern textured shawl making the most of one skein of fingering yarn, that’s fun to knit and easy to wear.
I love both sides of the Industry shawl and although they’re different, it’s perfectly reversible. The block pattern on the “right” side reminds me of old brick factories working into the night and the “wrong” side whispers of polished steel beam reaching into the sky.
Industry is knit from side to side – you’ll start in one corner with just a few stitches and you’ll watch your shawl take shape and grow as you knit. The end result is a slightly asymmetrical shawl that can be blocked into a crescent shape or a sharply pointed triangle. The choice is yours!
I’ve included written and charted instructions and it’s super easy to make your shawl larger if you like.
My shawl was knitted with a luxurious merino/cashmere/nylon fingering from Midnight Yarns and it’s deliciously soft and cosy. I can’t wait to see how it looks knitted in another yarn blend – a silk/merino will be fabulously chic and an undyed wool will enhance the cosy, textural aspect of the design.
