Who is ready for some summer fun? I definitely am — the temperature has been keeping me on my toes lately, but I’m ready for a beach trip with a drink in my hand! To celebrate, I’m excited to share with you my latest design: Paloma Stripe!

The Paloma Stripe Shawl is based on one of my favorite beverages. I love the taste of salt mixing with tequila and the fresh squeezed grapefruit soda flavor all mixing together. With these two yarns, I loved how subtle the two colors looked, reminding me of a Paloma. In the border of the shawl, I wanted to mimic a grapefruit slice with the brioche increases.

This is an asymmetrical shawl. It begins with simple garter stripes, and then brioche stripes are knit to create asymmetry. It ends with a row of brioche increases to create the grapefruit slice border.
