Westknits 2019 MKAL : Starflake

brioche knit make/made shawl

I cleared my diary so as to dedicate October to the 2019 Westknits MKAL. So enjoyable to knit with friends and see all the other starflakes being knitted. Looks set to become a tradition.

   

       

Craft : knit

Pattern : Starflake by Stephen West
Yarn : Wren & Ollie Sock Yarn
Colourway : Ochre & Vanilla Chai
How Much : 2 skeins of each
Needle : 3.75

Notes : I had 24hrs of pain in the brioche section when I attempted to fix a small error 4 rows down on one of the increase spines. It went from bad to worse. Should have embraced the error and corrected with duplicate stitch at a later date. It would have been barely visible in the scheme of things.

Loved the extra wide border and this helped bring the whole project together. Was not entirely in love with my colours originally. Stepped out of my comfort zone and think I will be wearing this all through autumn.
