Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief from The Wool Cabin—Day 2

The same, only different…

Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief from The Wool Cabin—Day 2 1
When you’ve knit as many shawls as I have—they’re my signature accessory, after all—certain themes come into play.  As I stitch my way through the soothing simplicity of the Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief, I’m reminded of the several similar pieces I’ve knit.

First to mind is the Blurred Lines Bandana from my trip to Dallas. Instead of a gentle solid, this one was a riot of pinks and purples, but the same concept of alternating stitch patterns loaded onto a double-increase-down-the-middle, yarn-overs-on-each-side construction.

Next I remembered the much larger scale of the Fog Shawl from Peoria, IL.  This one took the same alternation and construction to a daunting hugeness, but the colors were a charming array of ocean tones.

A version that brought a bit of lacy design to the mix was the Schmetterling shawl from my Chicago North Shore adventures.  More proof that a basic concept can host any number of variations.

span.s1 {font-kerning: none}
span.s2 {text-decoration: underline ; font-kerning: none}

How will this one turn out? There’s only one way to reach that answer—-keep stitching.
