Knitting pattern for Hisho shawl by Olga Jazzy
Hisho 飛翔 (jap.) - Flying, flight, soaring
The texture of this crescent-shaped shawl is achieved by working a shifting slip stitch pattern which helps to achieve that dimensional look. The impressive high relief knit fabric is enhanced by combining it with 4 fun colors of the semi-solid hand-dyed yarns, giving this easy striped shawl a twist and opening up a world of color possibilities! With varieties of styling options and finished with an I-cord bind off this shawl will captivate the knitter as much as the wearer.
The pattern is in Danish, English and Japanese
"I met Olga Jazzy for the first time many years ago at a course with Isager at Tversted Skole. Olga is from Belarus, but has lived in the US for nearly 20 years. She has a completely special ability to design the most wonderful and thought through designs. She can devise designs and methods as no one I've ever met. She lives to teach, design patterns and publish books. I have seen Olga's own Hisho shawl - and it is so beautiful! I have worked my own Hisho shawl in Önling No 4 (100% cashmere) and Önling No 2, and I love it a lot. I have also translated the pattern to Danish for Olga." says Katrine Hannibal.
