Knitting kit, Hand-dyed, Shawl, Alpaca, Silk, Stripes, Cream. Natural, Pink, Lemon, Gold
Stripes’ is an asymmetrical, triangular shawl in 3 colours of hand-dyed alpaca/silk yarn, highlighted by rows of eyelets in undyed natural yarn.
I was playing around with some of my favourite colour dyes, wanting to create a new shawl pattern. I love the drape of asymmetrical triangular shawls and wanted to see how the colour changes would play out across the garter stitch ridges. The use of the natural coloured, undyed yarn lifts the overall appearance of the shawl and the addition of the eyelet bands gives it a lightness and adds textural interest without being too technically demanding.
Hope you enjoy knitting and wearing ‘Stripes’

There are no difficult stitches in this pattern. It consists mainly of garter stitch (all knit rows) with a few rows of eyelets. Colour changes and increases/decreases on all rows may make it a little tricky for a novice knitter, but a confident beginner knitter, ready for a new challenge at the next level, could handle this project.
