tiger flower / Katrine Birkenwasser

more info

Tiger Flower is an engaging knit with masterful play of color. Completely reversible in two-color welting and brioche, Katrine Birkenwasser’s crescent-shaped shawl is worked from the top center out to bottom edge, with subtle striping and a beautiful floral border that shifts in color prominence. The two-color method used in this shawl is worked first in one color, then stitches are shifted back to the left needle and worked again in the second color, and repeated in the same fashion on the other side—a fun and adventurous colorwork technique, with a stunning result.
