The Design

Here is how Anne of atelier alfa describes her Stripeology Shawls

Stripeology is a collection of 2 large garter shawls with a 
generous size … and jazzy feel. As a jazz player would pick a ‘Jazz standard’ and improvise on the melody, this modular shawl gives you the fun and opportunity to play with rhythm (the stripes) and improvise the colors.

Stripeology #1 has a circular spiral shape (diameter ± 90 cm / 35½” and a depth going from ± 32 to 44 cm / 12½ to 17¼”. 

It is a very easy and fun project, ideal for mindless TV or travel knitting and a great way to use up stash yarns and combine colors. All the fun comes from choosing the next color and striping sequence. Completely worked in garter stitch with an incorporated I-cord edging worked at the same time. Only 5 purl stitches ^^ The first section is shaped using kfb increases. The next sections are worked using the easiest way of wrap and turn (no picking up any wraps)

Stripeology #2 has a crescent shape with a wingspan of ± 130 cm / 51” and it involves more techniques than stripeology #1: stitches will be picked up & knitted along an I-cord and it also makes use of a 3 needle bind off. Completely worked in garter stitch with an incorporated I-cord edging worked at the same time. Only 5 purl stitches ^^ The first section is shaped using kfb increases. The second section involves picking up stitches from the I-cord and the following sections are worked using the easiest way of wrap and turn (no picking up any wraps). Finally the shawl is bound off using a 3 needle bind off.

The Yarn and Colorways 

Both of these shawls are knit with fingering / 4 ply weight yarn using different colors of single skeins and rests.

 The designer recommends about the  ± 1400 m / 1550 yards.

So what we offer here in these kits are just about enough yarn to make either of these fun shawls; you can of course supplement from your own stash and expand the whole beautifully.

We offer intriguing kits, with yarns of highest quality, and colors selected to work beautifully with one another.
