Easy One Cake Shawl

Easy One Cake Shawl

"Hi knitters! When I design a new piece, I love to go all out and try my hand at every possibility no matter the difficulty, I feel like the harder I challenge myself, the more amusing and satisfying the results are. I'll spare you the details of my numerus trials and errors and only present you with the final polished piece. For this shawl, I chose to knit it using Caron's Big Cake, which I've bought recently. I aimed for it to look both complex and tricky, yet very easy to do. The tricky part of this pattern is actually very easy; you will need to knit both the beginning and the end of the skein/cake at the same time. This does not mean that you use both ends together, but alternately. To put it simply, you start the row with one end of the skein and you keep going until you reach the middle of the row. The center stitch is knitted using the yarn of both ends of the skein, then you complete the rest of the row by switching to the other end. As you keep on knitting, you will see the colors of the yarn switch up and meet in at the center in different arrangements. This means that depending on the cake you have, each time you knit this shawl you will get your own unique version."
