Designed by Martina Behm
Leftovers. Everyone has them, everyone hoards them – especially when they are some precious hand-dyed yarn that is not always in stock. Well, now their time has come: Leftie is an asymmetrical shawlette that was designed to show off your favorite little leftovers. The stripes will swirl around your neck in a very flattering way, and the cute tiny leaves are the perfect way to make your favorite colors shine (they are created by just a few short rows). It‘s all garter stitch, so the knitting is all fun and relaxing. There are quite a couple of ends to weave in, but that‘s no problem, right? You start with just three stitches, adding wider and wider rows and thereby forming a long and narrow triangle. The little leaves in contrast colors are formed by short rows that are explained in the pattern. This pattern, as the other triangular shawls Martina has designed, is very flexible: You can use any amount of yarn and end up with a small neckerchief, a small or bigger shawlette.
