Ten members joined in the first OWG knit along, choosing from two shawl patterns to knit along together. The patterns were both “stash busters”, so knitters could use yarns they already had. Yarns used varied immensely, from all mohair, to cotton, to merino, to sock yarn and in weights from fingering to worsted – sometimes all in the same shawl!
The group met via Zoom over three weeks in March. Terrific, clear demonstrations of unfamiliar pattern stitches were given by the group’s leader. It was inspiring to see the yarn choices and progress of each knitter as the weeks went by. Some members really “went rogue” on the patterns!
The shawl Patterns, “All Colors Work” and “Rogue Wave”, are both free on Ravelry online.
