My latest design, the Ripple Effect Shawl, is now available!
Two alternating solid colors are striped together, with feather and fan lace sections in a third, coordinating variegated color. The garter and lace sections get larger as the shawl grows, a bit like ripples on the water. Hence the name Ripple Effect!
This long crescent shaped shawl can be worn draped cozily across the shoulders or wrapped scarf-like around the neck. The garter stitch stripes are super squishy and cozy, while the lace sections add a bit of airiness and drape. In fingering weight yarn, it is the perfect light- weight spring accessory!
Knit in Madelinetosh Dandelion, the linen adds a lovely drape to the yarn, as well as a slightly tweedy look. Tosh Merino Light would also be a great yarn choice! The sample is knit in Hosta Blue, Cousteau and Seawash. I purposely choose a variegated yarn that matched well with the two solids, however for a higher contrast look try using 3 solids for an equally lovely effect. Stay tuned for some other color combinations I've come up with in the next couple days!
Have you seen the yarn bouquets from Jimmy Beans Wool? If you purchase one of the Madelinetosh Dandelion or Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light bouquets from Jimmy Beans, a copy of the Ripple Effect Shawl pattern will be included!
