The Color Field Wrap by Ann Weaver is one of 14 designs in the Berroco Portfolio Vol 3 Trunk Show.
This generous stole is knit flat with small sections of intarsia to create a stunning, one-of-a-kind shawl knitting pattern. Using 9 skeins of Berroco Modern Cotton (6 MC, 2 CC1, and 1 CC2) the wrap drapes beautifully and feels soft against your skin.
Modern Cotton is available in a palette of sophisticated neutrals and cheerful brights, Modern Cotton is a blend of Pima cotton and Modal rayon, beautifully twisted to showcase stitch patterns and a soft hand. The yarn can also be machine washed in cold water, delicate cycle then lay flat to dry.
The trunk show using the Modern Cotton and Modern Cotton DK will be at L & B Yarn Co. now through July 24th! Come by to check out all the designs. To take a look at the Color Field Wrap pattern just click here.
This is such a beautiful piece, I was able to watch this work in progress grow from week to week and the final product is absolutely beautiful! This shawl by Justyna Lorkowska illustrates the principle of both color and form: an old favorite colorway can be paired with your latest yarn obsession while the popular simple construction embraces new and different shape. The pattern is lovely knit in two solid colors or one solid and one variegated like the photograph shows.
Margaret knitted this one in Manos Del Uruguay Alegria (1 skein of Atlantico and 1 skein of Natural). This sock yarn is an easy-care blend of ultra-soft superwash merino with durable polyamide. Its “hand” is remarkably soft, resilient, and easy to work with. Manos Del Uruguay is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. The hands of Uruguay is a non profit organization which assembles women in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay. The aim of the organization is to bring economic and social opportunities to rural women.
Thank you so much to Margaret for sharing her project with us! To take a look at the pattern just click here!
The Paracas Shawl by Michele Meadows is a true work of art. The combination of striping, color changes, and bound off sections gives the finished piece a real interesting pattern effect. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
Knit using Mirasol Yarn Nuna an unbelievably soft and luxurious yarn. The fiber blend starts with extra fine Merino wool for a bit of bounce, adds mulberry silk for a lovely sheen, and then finishes off with a bit of bamboo viscose for drape!
Mirasol yarns are made in Peru to benefit the Mirasol Project – a group that strives to improve the lives of Peruvian shepherds. By purchasing Mirasol products, you are supporting the children of these shepherds and continuation of this ancient tradition. A portion of every purchase is dedicated directly to the funding of a shcool in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
The Pleat and Eyelet Scarf by Lisa Craig puts a jaunty spin on this long-line summer scarf. The pleated panels are worked simply from a pattern of garter stitch rib with alternating knit and purl stitch columns. A row of bobbles adds texture and embellishes the pattern. The scarf is knit in Taiyo a worsted weight cotton blend and is worked in two pieces then joined at the center using the Kitchener stitch. The banded stockinette and garter stitch pattern is punctuated with eyelet rows in between.
