Curious Collective Shawl Project: Week 1 Results

Welcome to all my new visitors who are joining in on this project to collectively design a shawl pattern!

The results are in for week one of the Curious Collective Shawl Project! Incredibly, after 1550 people voted, the results were only 2% apart

Textured stitch patterns win by a whisker! I’ll be pulling out my stitch dictionaries for knit and purl combos, cables and slipped stitch patterns this weekend. I can’t wait to get swatching. I already have lots of great ideas.

Curious Collective Week 1 results


You can join in the fun any time. Simply visit the blog  here to vote on your design choices each week and purchase the pattern from the Curious Collective Shawl Project page on Ravelry. The pattern is currently $1.50 which is a great discount from the full price of $6 once the voting is over. You will then be able to join in the knit along when the pattern is released.

I will be posting the poll for Week 2 tomorrow. I am adding three options to the vote this week and maybe it won’t be such a close result!

Are you surprised by the result? Happy with the outcome? I would love to hear your reactions in the comments!
