-Happy Knitting Yarn Clubbers!
Ad Hoc? Why did you pick that name, Josh? Well. Let me tell you…
ad hoc (ad hok, hOk), adv. 1. for the special purpose or end presently under consideration. - adj. 2. concerned or dealing with a specific subject, purpose, or end. 1550-60; Latin: for this
Does that answer your question? Perhaps if I point it out a wee bit more…
Ad Hoc as a shawl deals with a particular technique with a particularend. It is fully made of STRIPES and deals with them in such a way that you may not have seen before, while having a BLAST with construction and COLOR!
So grab those sticks, some fabulous yarn, and let’s get these stripes moving! The techniques used in this shawl make for a simple, fun knit that most knitters should be able to do, regardless of level of knitting. It uses a wee bit of short-rowing, stripes, and simple knitting techniques to really give the piece a fantastic shape and finish!
