May Knitalong: Architexture
Hello, knitters! The chosen project for May’s KAL is Architexture by Jennifer Weissman. This wrap is such a dreamy knit… combine gorgeous textures with beautiful yarn and, voila! a masterpiece. You can wear it draped as a wrap/shawl, or scrunch it up as a scarf. We will be unveiling some amazing yarn on May 8 that was specially selected for this project.
Below is the official info from the designer. Note that Jennifer knit the studio sample in a merino/silk sport weight and only used 626 yards for the small version.
Architexture is a rectangular scarf with pointed ends. Fully reversible, it is a collection of textures that enhance one another ~ made all the more striking because they are knitted on the bias. The frequent changes in stitch pattern keep the project engaging from beginning to end.
Although the pattern calls for fingering-weight yarn, sport and dk-weight yarns would work beautifully too. So choose a lovely solid or semi-solid yarn that will show off the variety of textures, and enjoy yourself as this elegant scarf takes shape in your hands.
