And so it begins!

I finally took the plunge to become a knitting designer and my first design has gone live on Ravelry.

Meet the nautical-inspired Submarine shawl:

A casual little shawl made from soft cool cotton to set off your summer outfits. The classic combination of navy blue and white is always popular in the summertime. It will look cool and fresh with any bright contrast colour – try green or pink for a surprising combination or go for the classical sailor style in blue white and red.

Submarine is an assymetrical triangle shawl, knitted sideways starting with a section in a structured „ripple“ stitch. A contrasting short-row wedge in stockinette is followed by a striped garter section. The shawl is finished with a ruffle along the lower edge and bound off with a contrasting i-cord.

The body of the shawl knits up rather quickly whereas the ruffle edge will require a little patience. But I had so much fun doing the i-cord bind off. I just love the neat look of i-cord!
