A Break in Tide is the latest iKnit7-with-Friends Knit-a-long which will continue through the month of July. It’s our favourite season for this kind of knitting. And perfect timing for winding up with a wonderful wrap for the cooler evenings ahead. To take part all you need to do is subscribe to the iKnit7 newsletter and get yourself a kit.
The shawl grows from the bottom-up in a triangular shape, with garter stitch followed by sections of Fisherman’s rib and slip stitch variations. The design starts gently with just a handful of stitches and increases at each end. Finally it’s bound off along the top edge.
The fabric of the shawl has the look and feel of brioche but is in fact fisherman’s rib. There is no brioche knitting involved at all. We’ve got a great link to working the fisherman’s rib stitch. It’s not tricky but good to know exactly where your needle tip needs to go.
