Watch Hill

As much as I love garter stitch, I need to add a little something to keep my interest. Fun but not too hard is my main designing mantra.

Watch Hill is a sideways knit shawl featuring garter and slip stitch sections. The end section is worked in a slip stitch mesh. Knit in two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn, Watch Hill is a quick knit and a great way to try out slip stitch color work.

This shawl requires two colors fingering weight yarn, approx. 400 yds/365 m each. I knit my version in OInk Pigments Targhee sock in the colorways Dragon Scales and Silver Lining.
