Bobble Waves is a large square shawl with a slit from one corner to the middle that can be worn in different ways. Lace-weight silk–mohair held together with lace-weight alpaca make it a lightweight and versatile wardrobe staple which is a joy to knit and wear. It is worked from the middle in garter, so there are no purl stitches. Simple garter ridges transform into garter waves – you knit the first part in MC only and then add bobble waves in three contrasting colours. The waves are fun to make – and don't worry about tons of bobbles – they are easy to make, with no turning of the work required.
Right now, Bobble Waves is only available as part of our Issue 7! You can get Issue 7 here.
