Meet my latest design…the Sorbetto Shawl! I am quietly proud of this latest ‘baby’ of mine and I so hope you will like it too. I have been working on this for a little while, and some of you who see my photos on Instagram have had small glimpses during the process.
I used some Handmaiden Camelspin, a lushes 70% Silk/30% Camel yarn bought during my last trip to New York, and some Dibadu 100% Silk bought in Germany for this sample. The shawl is buttery soft against the skin, and the drape is simply amazing. Knitted using 4mm needles, it grows really quickly and using garter stitch throughout makes it a fairly fast project. The simple lace edging is achievable even by newbie’s to lace knitting, and it shows off the shape and colours of the shawl to it’s full potential.
Whether you drape it over your shoulders in the cool evening breeze or wear it pashmina style around your neck, it is the perfect accessory to keep in your bag for anytime you need a little extra warmth. The shape of the shawl makes it easy to wear and very adaptable, no matter what the occasion. Make it as shown using three colours, or use a single shade only. It can also be easily adapted to other yarn weights, giving you plenty of options to personalise it to your individual style.
Light, soft and easy as eating sorbet on a summer’s day, this crescent shaped shawl is the perfect pick-me-up for any wardrobe. You can make your very own version by downloading the pattern now…just one click away…Here!
