Pointless Shawl.


I sat down to write the story of the Pointless Shawl and realised, I don't remember where I got the idea! I knitted the shawl a year ago and it took just two weeks to complete. Some ideas just work out well. Asymmetrical triangular shawls has been popular for some years and still are. I wanted to try out the construction and add some own tweaks to it. So I added the lace border to start with. Main body of the shawl was meant to be black, but got boring to knit, I added white stripes to it. When the shawl was big enough I decided to add mosaic border and bring decreases to the edge. What I didn't think of, the change of  decrease placement cut off the point of the shawl! I was a bit disappointed at first, wanted to rip it back and re-knit. I posted a photo on Instagram and asked for opinions. The best advice was to call it a design feature and name the shawl pointless!
Nearly a year later I finally wrote the pattern, got it tech edited and test knitted to ensure everything works well. And here it is! If you like it, get your copy from here.



Selle salli lugu algas umbes aasta tagasi. Asümmeetrilised kolmnurksed sallid on juba mitmeid aastaid populaarsed olnud. Otsustasin ka lõpuks seda konstruktsiooni proovida kududa, ja ma ei saa ju teisiti, kui ikka pean omamoodi tegema. Otsustasin pitsilise serva kohe külge kududa, et poleks mingit silmuste üleskorjamist tarvis. Värvid valisin jaki järgi, must ja valge. Valged triibud said lisatud, kui musta põhiosa kudumine igavaks läks. Teise serva lisasin mosaiik mustri, et sall oleks huvitavam, ja see sobitub jakiga ka. Kahandused tõin mosaiigi serva. Salli tipu puudumist märkasin alles siis, kui sall valmis. Tipp kadus "tänu" kahanduste asukoha muutusele! Kui alguses olin valmis mosaiigi üles harutama ja uuesti kuduma, siis peale Instagramis nõu küsimist nimetasin selle disainielemendiks ja sall ongi Tiputa sall! Kuigi Google tõlge pakub Mõttetu sall... Nii või naa, kuidas keegi soovib :)
Läkski ainult aasta, kui ideest sai muster. Kui soovid samasugust salli, siis mustri leiab siit.
