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.
If you rather just purchase the pattern and use yarn from your stash you can do so via my Etsy shop here .
Whatever you decide to do I can promise you this, the shawl is 100% comfort knitting, worked up in no time at all and ready to give you a blissful hug whenever you need all winter.
