Fun in the Sun Sideways Knit Shawl

Shawl de Sol

Shawl de Sol

Here’s a sunny little shawl knit sideways  in sections with some simple wrap and turns that make wedges which shape the shawl.  The lace border is worked with the main shawl.  Simple, fun, and cheery shawl.  Made with fingering weight Sky High Fibers Superwash Merino Sock yarn, it’s also fast to make.

New Hand Painted Yarn with More Yardage

2013-03-19 09.43.53

Many shawls made with fingering weight yarn require 2 skeins of yarn.  However, only about 1 1/2 skeins end up being used.  Now comes shawl length skeins that are 150 grams instead of 100 grams.  Perfect for most medium sized shawls.  These skeins are also great for knee socks.
