This fringed piece of wearable artwork by L & B Yarn Co. is a must knit! Simple enough for a beginner but beautiful enough for a skilled knitter you will love mixing the colors of Noro Mirai with Noro Silk Garden Solo.
Mirai is a gorgeous self-striping cotton, silk, viscose, and polyamide blend in a DK weight. You will love the softness of this single ply yarn mixed with a Noro classic Silk Garden. Silk Garden Solo is the same blend as the original Silk Garden but in more subtle colors.
The shawl is knit using a simple garter stitch increase combination that creates a diagonal design. A touch of fringe to one side of the garment adds a more asymmetrical feel to the finished piece. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
L & B Yarn Co. has turned this ordinary shawl into something extraordinary with just one ball of Feza Alp Oriental. This hand tied novelty yarn changes texture and color as you knit so you can’t wait to see what color will pop up next! When we say hand tied the yarn is literally knotted together from one texture to the next to create the transition. The knots are part of the beauty of the yarn giving the project a rustic shabby chic finish. Each ball is made up of 165 yards of mixed fibers including metallic, railroad, fuzzy, bumpy and other various thicknesses.
This shawl knits up in just a few hours and would make a great holiday gift! To take a look at the pattern by L & B Yarn Co. just click here.
I love the textures and shaping in Lightning Strikes by Amy Gunderson! It’s so fun creating this symmetrical shawl using asymmetrical knitting techniques. This shawl is knit using two different yarns that look completely different.
L & B Yarn used Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted Superwash and Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints. Deluxe Worsted Superwash is a worsted weight 100% superwash wool that you use when knitting the short rows. The short rows build up flat irregular stripes throughout the garment.
Bamboo Bloom a thick and thin, matte and shiny, acrylic, bamboo, and wool blend that adds so much texture and interest to the finished shawl. The bind off is worked back and forth across the edge of the piece, the yarn overs that are added while binding off give the fringe perfect even placement.
