I was knitting a striped shawl and felt lost as I didn’t know what to knit next. I found my way by deciding to turn the shawl into a jacket! This garment begins with a semi-circular top down shawl decorated with stripes and short rows. The ribbed back and garter stitch sides grow from picked up stitches. Two front seams mold the fabric into a convertible garment. Wear the garment upside down for even more drama.
