Embrace the color! Teeter Totter is for every knitter who is is ready to trade in that neutral color palette for something cheerier. It is knit using five colors of Ultra Alpaca Fine, a fingering weight blend of wool, alpaca, and nylon. The bars are knit using the intarsia method of color work. The shawl begins with a provisional cast-on and is knit from the top center point downward, creating a soft crescent shape. A garter stitch border is worked as you go. Finished measurements are 21" deep x 84" wide at its widest point. It can be machine washed and blocked flat. Designed by Julia Farwell-Clay.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- straight or circular needles in US size 3 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
