NoFa is a light weight half-hexagon shawl knit from the top down, with flowing stockinette fabric to show off the fancy yarn and a very simple lace detail to break the monotony and give some visual interest.
Playful bell ruffles form the bottom edge and give the shawl a romantic touch. The contrasting colour of the ruffles is slowly introduced with the use of fine stripes, so that the look and feel stays simple but refined.
Gauge is not essential for this project but will influence the finished size of the shawl.
Tension after blocking: 16sts x 40rows in 10cm/4inches.
I am quite taken by any combination of stripes and I love it when colour seems to give a whole new and unexpected shape to a project.
I am also very interested in everything related to seamless construction, not really because I hate seaming so much... it is just that knitting becomes much more interesting when it gets three-dimensional!
Like sculpting with yarn!!!
