About this Pattern
Upstream is a lightweight asymmetrical shawl and the pattern is deceptively easy, there are no complicated lace stitches involved, it’s all just knit and purl stitches with the occasional drop stitch which is done on purpose to create the wavy shaping.
The shawl combines knit and purl stitches which give it a lovely texture, and it is reversible too!
The picot edges of the shawl are created by casting off stitches at the start of a row on one side, and by a bind off at the end. The pattern is supported by video tutorial which walks through how to do this step-by-step.
The pattern is designed to showcase a sock blank gradient or pretty skein of 4 ply sock yarn. I would recommend using a yarn that has a range of similar colours, as the drop stitch pattern could get lost in a busy yarn. It looks fantastic in a solid yarn too.
The pattern has written and charted instructions and has been professionally tech edited and test knit. There are links to video tutorials provided in the pattern for various stitches and techniques used to make the shawl.
