{mood board} Italic Shawl

Italic Shawl

"Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance"  - Coco Chanel 

What began as a “I’m not sure this will work in a shawl” turned into “Wow, that is stunningly elegant” as the design took shape. Italic has its inspiration based in a technique, but is obviously so much more than that; the  simplicity and elegance hints at high fashion, and color choices make it completely personal. I see this shawl in so many places: wrapped around an LBD coming out of a broadway show, thrown over jeans and a tee on a sunny brunch patio, and even on the beach partially hidden by a gloriously giant sun hat.

The versatility of this design made for a very interesting mood board. From the elegant ballerina to an intense color pop in architecture, there is a lot of contrast, and something for everyone. I hope you enjoy seeing the inspiration and love Italic even more!

Pattern will release on Wednesday, July 11 in my Ravelry Store!



Crisp laid lines, close set buildings, and twisting city traffic, this cardigan parallels them all. Reflected here is the industrial monotone that is always underlined in color. Bold lines of a newly striped street, pops of vibrancy in a flowered window box, these and more are echoed in the slash of color provided by the Underline ribbing.

Worsted weight and top down construction ensures this design will be a gratifying knit. Since the set in sleeves are worked in short rows without seaming, you’re done when you bind off! Pockets are optional but always encouraged. This cardigan is a beautiful fixture and carries you flawlessly through your days as life bustles around you.
