Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increases
  • decreases
  • bobble
  • intarsia

Pattern Description:

This shawl is my third intarsia design. This time, in addition to using more than one colour, I am combining two yarns of almost opposite weight categories; worsted weight and lace weight yarn. The effect is a very impressive contrast between heavy and light, solid and transparent.

I did enhance this contrast by working the worsted weight wedges in the thick weave pattern and the lace weight wedges in the almost transparent stocking stitch. Some final garter stitch ridges prevent the edge from curling.

As always all techniques used will be explained in a detailed illustrated appendix.
