Exploration Station

Exploration Station

Exploration Station is a dramatic shawl knit in four colors. While knitting this top down, semi-circle shawl, you will learn Stephen West’s shortcut rows, two-color brioche ribbing, slipped stitches, stripes, and a chevron border.

As an added twist the designer, Stephen West, uses an i-cord tab cast on and an i-cord edge as you knit.  It will change the way you border your shawls! What a terrific opportunity to test out these different techniques in small doses. Let the exploration begin.
