Designer Melanie Berg has this to say about The Love of Spiders pattern; Friendship, love, and joy are the words woven into this whimsical shawl. It’s designed in collaboration with Little Skein’s line of knitting kits influenced by children’s novels, and is inspired by Charlotte’s Web, a beautiful story about finding love, growing up, and saying goodbye.
The delicate spiderweb lines are made with slipped stitches, as is the two-colour section meant to evoke Charlotte’s 514 children ballooning in the wind. This creates a beautiful stitch pattern without the need to work two strands of yarn at a time.
The shawl is knit down and out from the centre of the top edge, with increases at the centre and sides. It’s finished with a garter stitch border.
These two skein kits provide enough yarn for the shawl, the colours selected are inspired by the samples shown on the pattern page here.
