Symmetry, an original tip-to-tip shawl

The Symmetry shawl is a tribute to big cities. The inspiration is a skyline full of buildings with multicolored geometric shapes, lots of light and a futuristic vibe. The result is this youthful, fun and very practical shawl, thanks to its unusual silhouette. A tip-to-tip knitting pattern with increases in the first half and decreases in the second one. Knitting the different combinations of stitches and colors makes this shawl a fun adventure. Laura @knitandpepper.

What is a KAL?

A KAL (Knit Along) means to follow a knitting pattern at the same time as other knitters, during the same period of time. Which really means, “an online meeting point” where knitters from all over the world can meet; learn something new or a different way of working, for example, a stitch that you’d already seen; help other people to continue with their work thanks to your experience; but, above all, a KAL is for sharing your time and your passion for knitting.
