Colorblock Shawl by Jenn Emmerson is an easy-knitting, easy-wearing piece that will take you from early fall into winter. It’s worked in one piece from the bottom up in solid, contrasting colours using simple increases to create the triangular shape. While this is obviously a great pattern for beginners, we think the graphic, high-impact nature of the project makes it an appealing knit for all skill levels! [ED: ooops, the red and grey version is actually knit with Blue Sky Alpacas – Alpaca Silk (not MillaMia) – the grey and yellow sample below is knit with MillaMia. Note: We are also fully stocked with 30 colourways of BSA Alpaca Silk!].

MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino yarn is made from 100% extra fine Merino Wool. Its supersoft feel makes it ideal for babies and young children, and the lovely twist on the yarn means that the resulting knitted fabric has a great stitch definition. Produced in Italy.
