Waves of Grain

Waves of Grain Shawl knit in Interlacement Yarn Zig Zag
Waves of Grain-Interlacement Zig Zag

This shawl from the Interlacement Design Team and Sheryl Thies is a soft accent to dress up your wardrobe. The crescent shape shawl starts at the bottom edge with the waves of wheat lace pattern and ends with short rows in stockinette stitch. The short rows create a wider section at the center and narrows at each end. Zig Zag is 100% rayon and has a beautiful drape making it the perfect match for the Waves of Grain Shawl.

This beautiful design from Louisa Harding goes perfect with any attire. Amitola Grande is a subtly self-striping worsted weight, single-ply yarn. The soft blend of wool and silk made in Italy creates a piece that is truly timeless. The pattern has well written instructions that are easy to follow and the lace work keeps you engaged until the project is complete.

Lots of texture is created by blending the Trenzar and Amitola Grande along with the lace work. I love the length of this cowl because you can wear it long or double wrap it around your neck creating even more warmth.
