Rose Beck of RosyPosy Designs share her inspiration
for the Unique Melody shawl..."This pattern is named
after my sister Melody, a lovely person who has never been afraid to do
her own thing." Make a scarf or a wrap or anything in between! You
can decide on the width and length of this piece before or after you
cast on and its knits up fast in Malabrigo Merino Worsted.
This pattern is for those times when you just want to
cast on with a lovely yarn and think about your final project as you go.
Knit on the bias, the piece starts with one candle flame motif at the
corner. More are gradually added until the desired width, then the body
of the piece is kept on the bias by the continual addition of flame
motifs on the right while eliminating flame motifs on the left. Gradual
reduction in motifs finishes the final shape of a parallelogram (see
schematic pictured). This construction also allows you to pick any yarn
you fancy without too much planning ahead (just make sure you have
enough yarn!). I like the look of chunky lace, and the samples shown
were knit in cozy, heavy worsted weight yarns. However, this pattern
works for any yarn at any gauge--make your own Unique Melody!
