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 particular end. 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!
