Roam by Dawn Barker is a simple asymmetric bias triangle shawl, designed to use the concept of Assigned Pooling, or planned pooling. It invokes roaming across fields of tiny, bright flowers.
Assigned Pooling (or planned pooling) occurs when a change in stitch and texture is assigned to changes in color within a skein of variegated yarn. For Roam, stockinette stitch was used for the main color to create a backdrop for the bobble stitch using the accent color. This sample was knit by Jill using 2 skeins of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in one of the Tosh X Barker Wool Collaboration colorways. The luxurious, hand-dyed 100% superwash merino creates a fun and squishy-soft shawl.
