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. Knitters will also need a size 6.5 mm (US 10.5) 40″ circular knitting needle or size to obtain gauge. Photographed in color Violet Hues.
