I really like gradient yarns and I am always a bit disappointed when I can't use all the colours in a project, so with this design I tried to use up as much as possible. And I succeeded. I played a wee bit of yarn chicken - in the end I only had 1 gram left - but it was so worth it. Can you imagine not to use every single bit of this precious sock blank?
The sock blank was dyed especially for this project by Ella from Big Knitters and she kindly named the colourway 'Love, Mone'. :) The special colourway is available from their online shop, Big Knitters, but you can also choose to receive a different combination of three colours for your shawlette.
Now, what did I do with this beautiful yarn? I used it for the Crest of the Wave Shawlette and the pattern was released today in Knit Now issue 142.
The shawlette is worked from the top down and features an easy to memorise lace pattern. It is started with a lace cast-on in the width of the first small section in garter stitch
section is then shaped using short rows to achieve a crescent shape. In the lace section, additional stitches are increased on both sides of the shawlette.
Knit Now magazine is available from stores all over the UK and also online from Craftstash (print) or Pocketmags (digital download).
