Northern Flurries Shawl
Northern Flurries includes sections of lace alternating with double short rows. I started playing with double short rows at about the same time that I discovered the Snow Flurries lace pattern in a Vogue Knitting stitch dictionary.
Northern Yarn 4-ply, made from a single flock of Poll Dorset sheep in the north of England, provided the inspiration to combine the two in what turned into the Northern Flurries shawl.
Northern Yarn is woollen- spun and very “sheepy”, bringing cosy warmth and structure to the design.
Alternative yarns can be found on YarnSub.
Knit It Twice (KIT)
The KIT stitch is used as the first stitch of most rows. It allows the side edge to stretch further and gives a decorative bobble.
K2Tog-L - a left-leaning decrease
A neater alternative to an SSK. The yarn is removed from the front stitch of the decrease, just as it would be if the back stitch didn't get in the way!
