Bad Oyster Shawl

If you could only pick projects based on the titel … this one would be numero uno! The Bad Oyster Shawl by Dull Roar (a.k.a. recently moved Twistedista Alex) is so called because it’s got no purls… Ha! I love it if only for that alone!

More to the point, though, this pattern is just as clever as its name. You knit a cone in the round, then steek to create a triangular scarf/shawl with instant fringe. It is the coolest thing you’ve ever seen.

My good friend Alessandra recently knit up a Bad Oyster in Malabrigo Sock colorway Velvet Grapes. She and a few friends came over to my place for the big steek and we took a video. Note this is NOT a how to, in fact it’s total chaos… complete with lots of giggling and some whiskey.





And here are the finished object photos!
