Join me for a few stitches, let’s knit together! Aster Shawl is a wonderful companion to knit nights and festivals, and a great way to showcase those single skeins.
The original sample is knitted with two colors of Suri Alpaca and one skein of fingering weight merino. You can just as well choose three alternate color skeins of one single base or mix all the bases too.
Aster shawl is a lovely bias triangle shawl knitted in brioche and garter stitch, with a few short rows added to the mix.

The shawl is designed in collaboration with Botanical Yarn for Yorkshire Yarn Fest 2023.
