Twigs & Gravel
Twigs and Gravel are textured shawls created with Sequence Knitting, and designed by the inventor of Sequence Knitting - Cecelia Campochiaro. Both shawls use the shaped 1-row method, so every row is worked the same with the sequence. Increases or decreases at the end of each row create the shaping.
This design includes two methods for each shawl: a long edge first method and a short edge first method. So you can decide whether you want to decrease each row or increase each row!
Twigs & Gravel each use a repeat of knit and purl stitches, along with a decrease or increase each row, so if you already know how to knit and purl, this could be a great next project for you to test drive Sequence Knitting. And since you are repeating the same stitch pattern every row, it's a very portable project.
