PATTERN DETAILS

This is the second in a series of adventure shawls made for my best friend Monika to chronicle our travels together. The Reyes de Espana Shawl captures our amazing trip together through southern Spain with three other friends. We lived like kings, eating jamon and manchego everyday and enjoying a pot of sangria every night while we watched the stars over the olive orchard. The shawl has a unique construction that combines a circular shawl with a triangle shawl. The circular middle panel represents the beautiful geometric tiles at the Alhambra. The outer lace pattern mimics the skirts of the flamenco dancers on the streets of Sevilla during the Feria celebration. Although you may not have traveled with us, you can still enjoy this beautiful Spanish inspired adventure shawl. For the LACE Shawlette, you will need 2 skeins of the listed lace weight yarn (shown in colorway Lilac) - about 880 yds, size US 6 (4.0mm) DPNs and 16 in (40cm) circular (optional) needles as well as 29"+ circulars to help support the weight. For the FINGERING Full-sized Shawl, you will need 2 skeins of the listed fingering weight yarn (shown in colorway Gypsy for Stroll and Winter Night for Gloss) - about 924 yds, size US 8 (5.0mm) DPNs and 16 in (40cm) circular (optional) needles as well as 29"+ circulars to help support the weight Both sizes also require: size 6 glass seed beads, a 1.00mm crochet hook to attach the beads, and rust proof pins for blocking.

Kimberly found her love of design while knitting plastic bags into shoes and fishing nets for her Master’s thesis (for resource poor areas of the world with lots of errant polyethylene - not just for funsies). She found that working with yarn was sooo much nicer and the possibilities to make beautiful things were endless. Kimberly is now a full-time designer and an aspiring knitting travel writer - it may not be a profession yet, but give her time!
