Sweet Manuka is a triangle shaped DK weight shawl that is an exploration of texture- using garter, lace and brioche stitches and small rows of honeycomb cables.
This shawl was designed to be practical and wearable. The garter stitch provides extra warmth around your neck, while the lace body is breathable and the brioche border adds a touch of luxury.
This shawl is a fun and engaging knit- the bulk of the knitting is garter stitch and an easy lace stitch, with little bite-sized amounts of honeycomb cables and brioche. In DK weight, it flies right by.
If you are new to either cables or brioche, this shawl is an accessible way to explore new techniques!
