ew[e]ye – eye of a sheep
This shawl design is another reiteration of my ever-growing family of exaggerated slip-stitch patterns. Closely related to KORO-KORO this shawl however features an asymmetrical elongated shape, which some will find easier to style and customize! Three color stripes are arranged to create 6 distinct fabric sequences to appeal to every level of taste and preference. Once again rhythmic and easy to follow pattern which becomes enjoyable and fun as you see it emerge!
