Twisting Waters Shawl Kit

Color: Iced Coffee
Blue Spruce
Classic Blue
Damascus Steel
Iced Coffee

Designed by Padma R
Each KIT includes the Pattern and the amount of Yarn required

Twisting Waters is an elegant lace shawl that is worked sideways from one tip to the other, with the edging worked at the same time for an all-over lace fabric. The inspiration for this design comes from the sight of water flowing peacefully over pebbles in a river. Every now and then, the moving streams of water twist into long,  curving lines. In the attractive body pattern, gently curving lines of twisted stitches mirror the flow of water, while yarn overs add lightness and drape. The
leaf edging represents leaves that fall on the water surface and are carried along by the current.

Finished Measurements:
Length: 188 cm / 74" along top edge, 218 cm / 86" at lower edge

While we make every effort to represent colour accurately, they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.

Dyed-to-Order:  Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 2 - 3 weeksfor us to dye and ship your yarn. In addition, while we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
