Grapes Sherbet Shawlette
"Hello my fellow knitters! My favorite shawls to knit are still symmetrical shawls, and it's quite obvious if you look at my ever-growing collection of them. Big, small, lacy, or made with bulky yarn, there's just something about knitting regular geometrical shapes that is so calming to the eyes and mind. This multicolored, lace-edged design is a simple and quick piece to make through and through. One technique that might be new to some is knitting five stitches together, which I am sure you'll master once you read the method and try it. It is mainly used in the edge of the shawlette where the pattern is composed of many yarn overs with five stitches knit together between each eyelet group, which results in a very beautiful wavy edges. As for the main body, it is just garter pattern for the most part, with increasing stitches done by twisting the yarn-overs in order not to create eyelets. If you don't want to bother with that, there is an easier alternative which is just making an ordinary stitch increase. I chose a woolly yarn that was left from a form my Tiny Waves Shawl, but you can pick up any other yarn that matches the gauge. I wish you a lovely time making this shawlette, that you can put on your shoulder and around your neck when out on cool nights."
