Pestrushka Shawl KnitKit
Pestrushka is a new triangular shawl from designer Klara Zhulamanova, knit in Morehouse Merino Lace. Klara has an amazing ability to look at yarn and see the design that will make the yarn shine. This triangular shawl is worked from the bottom up. The garter edging is worked simultaneously with the body. The size of the shawl is easily adjustable.
If you need an easy project that requires just enough concentration to keep your interest, where you can use beautiful variegated (or not) yarn, this is it! Beginners need not be intimidated: you need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog/ssk, and p2tog/ssp (which are just the left or right leaning opposites). There’s also an i-cord bind off – and if you need any help, visit our tutorials page.
