Inspired by The Parent Trap movies, which had many of the camp scenes shot here in our local mountains at Lake Gregory & Camp Seely! The area has been in countless films since the Golden Era of Hollywood because of the close proximity to LA! This is a piece of summer camp you can have with you all year long.
This shawl was designed with Stella Merino for a beautiful twinkling in the low light of campfires and cool summer nights. This is meant to be a piece of summer camp you can keep with you no matter the season!
A simple design with color changes and details placed based on how it’s worn. You get a flattering silhouette when you’re wrapping it around your shoulders, and nice pops of detail when wrapped around your neck.
Small bands of linen stitch and a couple alternating stripes, and the rest is relaxing garter stitch. Color changes only require a couple breaks in yarn, for minimal ends to weave in. All you need to know is how to knit, purl and slip a stitch. Easy cast on- just 3 stitches and you’re on your way!
