Free Pattern Friday -Textured Shawl, Nimbus January 6, 2012 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays
Both of these patterns have been knit up as store samples. We knit the Textured Shawl using the luxurious Cascade Eco Duo (70% undyed Baby Alpaca, 30% undyed Merino) but other popular yarn choices are Garnstudio Drops Alpaca, Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend, and Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Orlane provides a “recipe” for this shawl but to make things a little easier for our customers we’ve written up a more structured pattern in two sizes – available in store. The Nimbus pattern calls for Berroco Peruvia Quick (all colours currently in stock) and is a very quick and easy knit. This classic sweater style seems to be universally flattering on most figure types. If you have doubts, come in and try it on – you may be surprised!
