feministy.com Uniquely simple knitwear designed by Liz Abinante.
Voussoir Shawl is modeled after the wedge-shaped bricks that fill in the gaps in archways left behind by regular, lesser bricks. The smocked cable motif stacks rows of stitches in a similar fashion, creating miniature archways of cabled stitches. Paired with ribbing, this scarf has no proper top or bottom.
Comprised of 3 patterns, the Arch Shawls collection features stitch motifs inspired by elements of Venetian architecture. I don’t claim to be an expert on architecture, but the vast buildings throughout Italy inspired me to create shawls based on the styles used in their unique structures.
All three shawls are single-skein projects and worked using short rows, each one making use of a cabled, lace, or textured motif.
Patterns may be purchased individually ($6 each) or as a set of 3 ($16).
