For my next shawl, I’ve given myself two constraints. I have a skein of silk yarn that has subtle color changes in it. I’m trying to work up a design that is reversible and that has horizontal lines to it so that the color changes in the yarn move with the design, not across it. Originally, I had hoped to incorporate a fish motif, but the yarn striping has obscured my attempts so far. Patterns with attractive reverse sides are few and far between, so i keep swatching to find the reverse not as attractive as I had hoped. I’ve ripped out several swatches in this precious yarn to redo them again as I’ve been afraid I’ll use up the skein swatching otherwise!
