Want to knit an eye-catcher? Or do you have a crazy color combination on your mind, waiting to jump onto your needles? Iszara might be just the right thing for you. Iszara is a striped, semi-circular shawl, knitted in garter stitch. The stripes are worked using the intarsia technique. If you(tm)re not familiar with this technique " don(tm)t worry, it(tm)s not difficult at all! All you have to do is twist yarns whenever you come to a color change in the middle of a row, ie: when you switch from one color to another, put the new working yarn UNDER the old working yarn in order to trap the old working yarn between the new one and the knitting, then pull all ends a bit tight. That(tm)s it. Yardage requirements are 4 skeins Quince & Co Finch in Kittywake (MC) and 1 skein Quince & Co Finch in Carrie(tm)s Yellow (CC). BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on, knit, yo, decrease, purl, intarsia, bind off, GAUGE 23 sts and 45 rows = 4" [10 cm] in garter stitch, after blocking.

I’m Melanie, and I combine texture and color into wearable modern designs that are both playful and beautiful. I design to surprise — from matching cheeky stripes with elegant lace, to choosing unexpected color combinations. I love to collaborate with other creative types around the world, and my patterns have been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I find inspiration in the landscape, history, and culture.
