Malabrigo Quickie: Plain Sight Wrap by Katherine Vaughan

Mmmm, a chunky lace shawl! What could be cozier?

Designer Katherin Vaughan says:

Short row shawls are all the rage, but most are worked from the bottom up. This limits the flexibility that is one of my favorite aspects of standard top-down shawls; the ability to change the size and border as you know how much yarn you’ll have at the end.

This shawl starts with a garter stitch body shaped into a triangle with short rows (no wraps!), then moves into a mesh lace border with a fun bindoff. Make the shawl larger or smaller by changing the number of stitches in the body and/or the number of rows in the border.

The name comes from the not-quite camouflage effect of the Hummingbird colorway used in the sample, which gives me the feel of hiding in plain sight in the urban jungle!

Very cool and innovative, not to mention snuggly! You can findthe Plain Sight Wrap on Ravelry here, have a look through past Quickies here. Great design, Katherine!!

What are Malabrigo Quickies?

Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn. Approximately every two weeks we’re teaming up with a talented independent designer to present an exciting new accessory (or other “small object”) pattern, showcasing one of our many yarns and colorways.
