I had the pleasure to test knit a beautiful shawl pattern. When I first saw a picture of the shawl – i knew i would love to give it a go. With some strong graphic stripes!
Stripes and texture = the best!
Choosing colors musta been the most difficult step or just choosing the fibre! I had about 3 different shades of blue and two yellows all in various fibers. After some countless cups of coffee and spotify tunes I decided to venture out to the local yarn shops to see a better shade to accompany one of my blue’s. After a tour of 4 local shops I found this crRrazy yellow for my deeb dark blue. Shilasdair luxury 4ply with Filcolna Arwetta.
After over a year.. i actually bought yarn that had manufactured fibers in it.. gosh. I find them yucky – i don’t knit socks and even with them i don’t get it. Anyway 😀 the color won over the 20% plastic bag – and they work together very well.
This knit took me 9 days. It was mostly stockinette stitch and a very good knit with some tv on the side. I watched the Bimilui Soop/Forest of Secrets (Salainen metsä) from Netflix – a Korean TV-series. Subtitles+knitting, with this knit was easy. I don’t speak or know a word in korean, and there was a lot of speedy talking!
Pattern is now available in Ravelry
get it, knit it & ❤ it
The construction of the knit was very surprising but so smart! And it made the knitting of it all the better and easier to follow. I will definitely knit this shawl again someday – with some leftover yarns, also maybe one in lace and one in bulky. This pattern is very easy to modify with yardage – which makes it perfect for every knitter, the pattern is very well written – superbly easy to follow.
This right here was a happy knit 😀
