Welcome Hipster to the shop! We mentioned back in November that we had plans to work up the Hipster Shawl using Magpie Swanky DK, a lovely, silky blend of merino, cashmere and nylon with beautiful drape and sheen (250 yards/skein). Well, we're thrilled with how it turned out, and we especially love its generous size; after blocking, ours is 85” x 27”. Worked from the center top down, stitches are increased at each side on every other row to give it its characteristic crescent shape.




Want a Hipster for yourself (or have your eye on some Swanky DK for another project)? Shop all 42 colors HERE! You'll need three skeins to complete Hipster. The pattern  is available HERE!


Our sample is knitted in Ghost Town.
