Hello friends, it’s been a while.

Today I would like to introduce you to my latest design, the Astrid Shawl. This shawl is a  wonderful collaboration with my friends from Nature’s Luxury (www.naturesluxury.com) and I am truly and totally in love with this one.

This is a triangular shawl inspired by the colours and patterns of Scandinavian folklore and culture. The shawl is worked from the top down with increases worked every other row at outer edges and centre spine. The use of striking colours and textured, as well as simple Scandinavian stranded patterns, set the scene for some fun knitting hours for the experienced knitter or knitters wanting to explore new techniques.

Astrid, meaning divine strength, is showcasing Nature’s Luxury Alpacas Bliss, a chunky hand-dyed 100% Alpaca Yarn, so so soft and snuggly, making it perfect for a total comfort knit. The yarn is available in a stunning array of colours, all hand-dyed by Danica of Nature’s Luxury.

Four 100g hanks is all that’s required to make this shawl and Danica has put together beautiful colour combination kits to choose from. You can mix colours together yourself if you prefer and the kit contains the pattern of course. This makes it a perfect addition to your Christmas wish list or to treat yourself right away.

Take a look at the available colours and kits HERE.

Meet Cloud my latest shawl design and available for instant download via Loveknitting or my Etsy shop.

Almost weightless, very soft and fluffy just like a cloud, this shawl is the absolute go-to accessory for year round wear. A symmetrical shawl knitted on the bias increasing outwards from one point for a long flat triangle, it is non bulky with many options for an effortless and easy to wear look. A must in every Knitter’s wardrobe.

For the sample in the photo I used one ball of Schoppel Edition 6 and one ball of Lang Mohair Luxe. This would make a great first shawl project for the novice knitter or, for the more experienced knitter, this is a perfect project to relax in front of the TV with. The shawl knits up in no time at all and is finished with a crochet corkscrew edging.

The finished size of 32cm x 150cm make Cloud the perfect accessory to keep you snug and warm without being thick and heavy.

I hope you enjoy!

X.
