Knit the Shoulder-Hugging Waterford Shawl ...
Featuring Mountain Colors Twizzlefoot
When we received our first shipment of Mountain Colors' Twizzlefoot sock yarn, Amy was inspired to knit this fantastic shoulder-hugging shawl. With panels of diamonds picked out in eyelets, we couldn't help but think of the crystal decanters in the shop window across the street … or maybe we just wanted Scotch.

Waterford Shawl
by Amy Loberg
It's always interesting to see the little details of engineering that reveal Amy's very orderly approach to design. Worked from the neck down using two skeins of Twizzlefoot, this shawl sports a slightly dense garter stitch edging at the neckline to keep the fabric strong and to provide a base on which the rest of the shawl is built. From there a panel of single diamonds flow down from each shoulder, and a broader three-diamond panel flows down the center back. The shawl is then finished with an all-around panel of miniature diamonds along the bottom edge.

Mountain Colors Twizzlefoot
Twizzlefoot is a sock-weight version of their popular worsted-weight Twizzle. The yarns take their name from the lovely barber-pole effect that results for one ply in the yarn being entirely silk.
The silk takes dye differently than the wool it's plied with, and the resulting fabric has a vaguely tweedy look. The silk also gives the resulting fabric a bit more drape than a basic wool-nylon blend sock yarn would have.
On top of all that, add Mountain Colors' rich, super-saturated dyeing, and Twizzlefoot is sure to become an instant classic.
