Dried Lavender Shawl – Knit Pattern
The Dried Lavender Shawl was originally made in collaboration with Yarnz for their Project Club (you can still buy the kit from Yarnz). It can be made using two kinds of yarns, Balayage from Pascuali and Eco-Fusion from Nurturing Fibres. The instructions are almost the same (except for the final rows), the only difference is that the shawl made with Eco-Fusion is slightly smaller.
The construction of this shawl is quite basic with 4 increases every time you work the right side and it’s worked flat so I wanted to make this shawl interesting with different stitches and playing with 3 colours.
