I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

You’ll need:
A selection of yarn (Mohair 50%+) with colours and density of own choice, Needle size 15mm, 10mm, 6mm; Tape ruler, knitter’s needle.

Using the darkest yarn, cast on 60 stitches with the 6mm needle. Knit in stocking stitch 8 rows.

Occasionally change colours while alternating between 10mm and 15mm needles between rows to create an uneven knit look. Keep knitting until it reaches a length you desire the shawl to be.

Bind off work. Repeat from beginning for the other side.

Stitch two together with black yarn.

As seen in Vogue Girl Korea November 2009 issue

Tips and caring advices:

  • If you’re an experienced knitter, it’d be best if you could do a tension swatch for the yarn before casting on.
  • For beginners check out this youtube channel for great tutorials. Great place to start learning actually.
  • Alternate between colours but also thickness of yarns. I just stuck to mohair but you could always bring in different types of yarns like acrylic or other wool blends to create texture.
  • Hand wash only, dry flat.

  43. […] File under: breathtaking. It’s a Rodarte-inspired shawl/wrap, knitted by Shini from Park & Cube. Instructions and process shots at the original post. […]

  45. wow. wow. WOW! love this. I cannot knit to save my life. gonna have to buy one!

  46. […] mig bare ikke og da jeg så googlede rundt efter noget Rodarte DIY  forleden faldt jeg over dette blogindlæg. Det kan vel ikke være så sindssygt svært, nu maskerne ikke behøver at være helt […]

  47. i love love love this piece. you did such a wonderful job appropriating the rodarte vibe…right down to the punked out seam running up the back. i have been obsessed with decoding rodarte, esp the crazy mohair fishnet tights they showed a few seasons back. here’s a link from my knit-style blog in case you’re interested in more rodarte knit eye candy: http://knitlit.blogspot.com/search?q=rodarte

    in any event, thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial! i am heading into my stash of luscious mohair leftovers today!

  48. I love this :) :) though- i get so lazy when knitting- i abandan halfway through :/ :P

  49. wow…soooo coooool….bought wool some weeks ago….and tryed out….but know…found
    your instructions…thanks very much

  50. A handful of very good issues listed here and truly just didn’t have a idea regarding any of this before so many thanks for the insight

  51. […] via […]

  52. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. With thanks

  53. Can I use other needle sizes or more than few of the one you used? I have some really big fat needles. I want to knit for my sister living in Malaysia, a tropical country. I thought the fatter the needle, might help to make my shawl using moisture of mohair and wool lighter.

    Thanks :)

  54. Oh yes of course! That’s the beauty of this project, that you can use any needle – just remember that the bigger the needle, the looser the hole, so you might want to offset that with a smaller needle to tighten up the structure. Good luck!

  55. Aj

    Love his, Shini! Can’t wait to start. Did you switch colours mid-row to get the different colour effect? Xx
