While revisiting my Dr. Seuss themed mini-stitch dictionary One Stitch, Two Stitch I decided that I needed to add more shawl shapes that would work with the concept. The idea behind the collection is to explore what can be achieved using stitch patterns that are only two stitches wide by providing plug-and-play style patterns that the knitter can customize with the included stitches. The original e-book (linked above) includes a hat, scarf, cowl, and shawl.

For my first new shape I decided to go with what is known as a “heart” shaped shawl. It isn’t a true heart, but it is a fun top down triangle shape with extra increases down the center of the wrong side. These extra increases elongate the “wings” of the shawl, allowing them to more fully envelop the shoulders which makes the shape easier to wear than a traditional triangle shape shawl!

For yarn I chose Susurro from Malabrigo. This blend of 50% silk, 25% merino wool, and 25% linen has beautiful drape, texture, and shine along with the always amazing Malabrigo color choices. My sample is worked in Tiger’s Eye, but you can chose your favorite. Since the pattern is in sections you can adjust the repeats to fit the amount of yarn you have. You could also change the yarn weight (and needle accordingly) but with the gauge change the yardage requirement becomes unpredictable.

The pattern includes written instructions for knitting the shawl, instructions for how to customize the pattern by inserting your chosen stitches from the One Stitch, Two Stitch e-book, and a worksheet to make customizing easier. The e-book must be purchased separately.
