TULIP SHAWL KIT
Designed by Caroline Sommerfeld
Each KIT includes the Pattern and the amount of Yarn required.
This shawl is inspired by the work of William Morris, a 19th Century artist who created amazing graphic designs featuring floral patterns for wallpaper. I was intrigued by the notion of combining such a motif together with several types of knitting that I am frequently drawn to in order to create something just a little off the beaten path, much like William Morris himself!
This triangular shawl, with an optional fringe, is knit from the top down and can be knit in the round, using a steek, or can be knit in rows (either back and forth with no fringe, or in rows on the right side only with a fringe). No matter your preferred method, you can make a beautiful shawl to keep your shoulders warm!
Shawl measures 193cm/76" in width from tip to tip, and 72cm/28.5" in depth from centre point to inner edge, exclusive of fringe.
Yarn is marled (worked holding two strands together) except where working stranded charts. Shawl requires 2 skeins in MC, and 2 skeins in CC.
