Striped Esjan by Stephen West

2020 knit make/made shawl SHAWLS

2020 : Striped Esjan

Love the colours. Love the combination of mohair and merino. Love garter stitch and lace.

Having recently finished the Starflake MKAL and loving the photography and styling in the new book Westknits Bestknits Number 3 - Shawl Evolution. How could I resist! I knitted most of the garter stitch sections on long flights over our summer break. 



Craft : Knit

Pattern : Striped Esjan by Stephen West. Published in Westknits Bestknits Number 3 - Shawl Evolution
Size : Large 
Yarn : Wren & Ollie Sock Yarn (1 skein of each Cinnabar & Vanilla Chai) Concept by Katia Silk Mohair in colour 221 Ochre
Needle : 3.75mm (I was in a rush to pack this project for a trip and ended up with 3.75mm neeldes. Hence I used less yarn.)

Notes The garter stitch section was perfect for travel while the lace required attention to setup.
