Ziggity

Ziggity Shawl 1

The two color Ziggity shawl is shaped with 2 increases on every row. The top edge curves slightly up at the center back to give added protection to the neck on cold days. The bottom edge has a gentle curve which may be blocked to soft points as shown or with a straight edge.

Simple garter stitch gives way to a lively zig-zag lace pattern. Experiment with color - try working each section of the zig-zag in a different yarn, or work the garter stitch in a variegated yarn and the lace in a solid. The more adventuresome may even want to try two different colorways of self striping yarn. For a more understated look a single solid color will make an elegant shawl for a more formal occasion.

Ziggity may be worn tossed casually around the neck like a scarf, draped over the shoulders as  a shawl or even wrapped multiple times around the neck with the ends tied and tucked under as a cowl. Have fun experimenting with multiple ways to style this shape.

Love it! I'm also really amazed by how changing the colors makes it more elegant or more playful. That speaks loudly about the versatility of the design. It looks fabulous across the spectrum.
