To boldly go…

Last month, I had a crazy idea. I was thinking about using garter stitch for my next shawl, but there are so many garter stitch shawls out there. Then it hit me: why not combine knitting and crochet? The idea seemed outrageous at first and I wondered if this would even work. Maybe the fabric would curl? I decided to use a crochet stitch as easy and as loved as the garter stitch – and hello granny triangle! As soon as this was finished, I picked up stitches from the top and knitted a few rounds. It worked! Now that this shawl (release date late May) is with the testers and I have gotten quite a few positive comments, I will definitely design more combination patterns!
