Emily Explains: Getting Creative with Iwo
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…
How would you customize Iwo?
