It Started with a Sketch: Pennyflower


I’d wanted to try indie dyed yarns from Baerenwolle for a while, and when I spotted these two colors, After Eight and Truffle, I knew they were meant to be together. It’s such a perfect mint chocolate combo!



I’d also had a design idea for a flower shawl in mind for almost a year. The way in which the flowers are knitted changed a bit from the initial idea but the basic concept stayed the same. Here’s my sketch from last fall. Pretty close to the final shawl, right?



Pennyflower is made of squishy garter stitch knit into striking color blocks. Series of flower motifs give this simple graphic shawl some visual interest – and an engaging break in between the garter stitch sections. Starting from the upper left corner, the shawl is knit on the bias to create an asymmetric triangle. The flower motifs are knit with knit-below and elongated stitches.

This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Instructions are given only in written format but the pattern includes a step-by-step photo tutorial for knitting the pennyflower stitch.
