Piu-piu is an asymmetrical shawl knitted bias in one piece, starting with only a few stitches on the needles. It has a cute border and attractive lines hence to the different patterns used – lace, mock cables, textured and elongated stitches – being somehow challenged and fun – you’ll never know what you encounter next! Even though it was especially designed for beautiful variegated yarns it works well with solid colors too.
MATERIALS: 582.4 – 669.7 m (636.9 – 732.4 yds) of sport yarn; size 4 mm (US 6) circular needles; tapestry needle; 1 marker, pins or wires for blocking.
How it works
- I’ll provide a thread for each week’s clue where questions can be asked and progress pictures shared.
- Because this is a mystery K.A.L, I kindly ask you to not post any progress pictures until the K.A.L. is officially over - use the above picture for your project page photo, and share your W.I.P. in the weekly thread instead.
- You cannot reveal pattern clues or final pattern anywhere or send them to someone else; pattern is protected by copyright and is for personal use only. Please make sure the pattern instructions are not visible in the pictures.
- Everyone is welcome to participate and join the fun, please remember to link your project page to the pattern and add the tag piu-piuKAL :-)
