The Sampler Shawl is the product of sampling bases and pairing them together to see the resulting fabric. This fabric may be meh or it may be a charming meet cute--you know that amazing first encounter with someone that just makes your heart sing! In this case it’s the latter! In fact, we loved the fabric of Tod and Mho Mho together so much that we couldn’t wait to wrap it around our neck and shoulders. Thus, the Sampler Shawl was born.
The Sampler Shawl is a top-down triangle shawl worked in stockinette stitch with one strand of Mho Mho held together with one strand of Tod. Quickly knit on size 10 needles, the Sampler is the perfect shawl to ‘sample’ the yarn and its colors. It’s your go-to knit for when you just want to knit for the pleasure of knitting!
