    This wonderful new shawl pattern by Åsa Tricosa is knitted top down from a Winding Provisional Cast On to make a "Tricosa tab" that sets up a mistake-rib border.

    A simple hourglass pattern lends beautiful texture in an intuitive knitting rhythm, and a makes for a nice, squishy texture. The shawl expands rapidly to form a shoulder-hugging crescent. A generously flared final border completes the shawl, flowing from the mistake rib along the top edge.

    Every row is written out. There are also separate instructions for knitting from entirely from charts.

  • About me

    I am a Swedish knitting designer who now lives in Germany with a Danish husband.
    I knit with abandon.
    I’ve knitted my way from Sweden to Germany via New York and Boston and Singapore, and Sussex.
    You will soon notice that my designs are mostly seamless and top down, and that I’m seriously attracted by clever solutions.

    The Ziggurat sweater is my signature. It’s a seamless, top down, contiguous or Simultaneous Set In sleeve method that I have developed and polished since my first Ziggurat saw the light in 2011. I’m still somewhat obsessed by it.

    Just a little bit later I cleared my desk of notebooks and scribblings about J.S. Mill and a turgidly slow-forming PhD dissertation – “knitting” appears exactly nowhere in his Collected Works. I’m sure you can see the problem.
    I’m a knitter, not an academic. I know there are academic knitters –  and knitting academics. I’m just not one of them.

    My other somewhat edged-out-of-the-way obsession is food. Good food. And crusty bread. Our house pet is a sourdough starter (which I happily share).

    By the way, Åsa (Ooh-sah or Awe-sah) rhymes with Tricosa in most or many languages. Söderman rhymes with not much at all.

    I hope you enjoy my designs!
