This dreamy shawl is warm and so, so, so, soft! Made with a filigree-fine, lace-weight yarn of silk and kid mohair, it knits-up light as air. Though the shawl is generously proportioned it will never weigh you down. Fine, yarn combined with a 6mm needle makes this a quick project! The blend of kid and silk creates a knit fabric of ethereal, transparency. When the shawl is folded, the overlapping colours conspire to form pattern and dimension.
So much going on and still a breeze to knit! The shawl is knit in easy stocking stitch on the bias. A repetition of increases followed by decreases make the diamond shape. You may follow the pattern’s colour sequence exactly or make up your own striping pattern as you fancy.
Take a break from your more taxing knitting projects to knit this simple and elegant shawl.
Your Knit Kit comes with: the Knit Café Clouds pattern and four skeins of Shibui Silk Cloud yarn. This is enough yarn to knit your cloud shawl with some to spare. Choose between our colour pallets named after some members of the Group of Seven Painters who knew a thing or two about colour combining:
Lawren Harris is knit with pool, ivory, suit, ash
Tommy Thompson is knit with field, pollen, poppy, ash
A. Y. Jackson is knit with field, clay, abyss, fjord
Level: Knitter’s must know how to cast on, to knit and purl, and how to increase and decrease stitches with “Make One” and “Knit (Purl) Two Together”.
