FO: Akimbo

Because I needed another shawl…Right?




I’m gonna be straight up about this here: This shawl is a pain in the ass to knit. The invisible increases, around slipped stitches? Yeah, no thanks. The increasing two invisible stitches from one stitch? Yeah, no thanks again. Seriously, if you are a remotely tight knitter parts of this pattern will be somewhat challenging for you. But whatever, its cute, I am done knitting it, and I don’t ever have to do it again!!


Pattern: Akimbo by Stephen West
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Sock. Light blue = mourning dove Dark blue = thunderstorm.

  1. Thank you thank you thank you! Everyone on Ravelry raves about this pattern and says how easy it is. I have to agree with you, it is a PITA. I have frogged the border 4 times now and am thinking of doing straight one.
