“Organised Chaos” is a shawl worked in 2 sections. Firstly the longer ‘wing’ which has one straight edge where the colour changes take place and one sloping edge which is increased on every row. The second ‘wing’ is picked up along the straight edge of the first ‘wing’ and is decreased at the lower edge on each alternate row. Finally the edges are neatened by picking up the stitches along the lower and part of the upper edge and working a narrow garter stitch border.
The design for this shawl pattern was inspired by my love of colour and dyeing yarn, together with a desire to incorporate a number of different colours into a single piece. Looking outside as I started planning, the annuals were just coming into bloom and the grooves of our wooden decking reminded me of garter stitch ridges. I had 8 skeins of seemingly chaotic colours which I organised into this unique shawl design which I hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing.
