New store samples: Summer Shawls June 10, 2014 – Posted in: Project Ideas, Store Samples
Ship to Shore
Ship to Shore Shawl by Katie Rempe is a quick, easy, and oh-so-pretty summer knit. We worked up our version with one skein of Jade Sapphire 2 ply Silk Cashmere for the ultimate in laceweight luxury. We also enlarged the overall size for greater coverage (see notes on our Ravelry page for instructions). The different stitch patterns throughout provide visual interest but also keep the knitting process engaging. And before you know it, it’s finished! Note – the original version of this shawl is knit with just one skein of Shibui Linen – a more casual but equally lovely alternative!
Overcast by Katya Novikova is actually a crocheted shawl (we’re hoping to add many more crochet projects to our inventory of store samples over the next months). This is also a quick and straightforward pattern and our choice of Classic Elite Firefly yarn lends a beautifully rustic and natural look. Easily worn as a shawl or wrapped and tied as a kerchief, Overcast is light, versatile, and practical. Skill level is advanced beginner; pattern provides written step-by-step instructions and charts.
