With Christmas almost upon us, today sees the release of my final design for 2017.
May I introduce the
K Y O T O S H A W L
A triangular shawl inspired by the delicate Cherry Blossom petals of Kyoto in Japan. The shawl is worked from the top down with increases worked every other row at outer edges and centre spine. The use of delicate lace weight yarn, either alone, or held together with a strand of Silk Mohair set the scene for a light, yet warm accessory keeping you warm on cooler days and evenings. It also makes for a perfect travel accessory.
The simple garter stitch body of the shawl is finished with a super striking lace border, showing off the beautiful Kokon Yarn to its full potential and making it the perfect project for any knitter who is looking for a relaxing yet a little challenging knit.
This has been a wonderful collaboration with Michelle of Kokon Yarns and I have enjoyed every minute of this process. From receiving the beautiful yarn, swatching various ideas and then knitting up the final design, it has been a pleasure to work with Michelle. Her beautiful Kokon Yarns are available via a number of Retailers, online and in shops, just visit her website to find the most suitable to you.
I hope you will enjoy knitting this shawl just as much as I have enjoyed designing it for you.
