Emily Explains: Getting Creative with Iwo

344_iwo_lg_0-1

I’m excited to say that Iwo is one of our most popular designs for Spring/Summer 2014. This two-tone shawl is knit in Berroco Folio which is a great trans-seasonal yarn made from alpaca and viscose. It’s so soft and light, it can work as an accessory in the spring and summer, but it’s also warm enough to keep cozy in the winter.

Iwo is shaped like an elongated trapazoid and can be worn as a shawl or a scarf. It is knit in stockinette with simple intarsia, alternating between two colors.

The other day, our New Englad sales rep, Andra, came into the office to visit. She told me she had already knitted a few different versions. In one, she even added a third yarn for additional color and texture. It made me realize how easy it is to create and play with Iwo!

Choosing different color combinations is an obvious choice.

You can also try knitting Iwo in garter stitch for a totally different fabric…

    Have to say the instructions for this in the pattern book are not the best. There is no mention of intarsia either in the instructions or in the terms and for a beginner knitter like myself I was stumped having never cast on two colors for color blocks before. I’m going to get help from friends but just thought I would let you know. I’ve already made the enso and the Folio yarn is amazing.

      I’m sorry you found the instructions difficult. I am happy to hear your friends were able to assist you! I hope you are enjoying the pattern now. It is a great project for learning intarsia.

      Happy Making!
