Tourlaville Shawl

Published in Knitscene, Fall 2015

A touch of brioche at the very edges of this top-down triangular shawl adds a bit of interest. A long color-repeat yarn, worked using two balls in a striping sequence, creates a striking coloring effect.

You can buy the pattern by the Knitscene.

Carrara Shawl

Published in Knitscene, Winter 2014

Zsuzsa designed this shawl to be the answer for those knitters who love laceweight yarns but shy away from laceweight projects. Using two strands of laceweight held doubled throughout, the shawl progresses from lightest shade to darkest with a simple lace pattern worked in between shifts. A luxurious yarn and generous size make this the perfect shawl for any occasion.

You can buy the pattern by the Knitscene.

Sunday Sunrise

Published in: Knitty, Issue 14, March 2014

 

The top I used was hand-dyed by me especially for my sister who loves orange. Once finished, there was no doubt that it would become a sun-themed, semi-circular shawl.

The shawl is knitted top-down. A simple flame-like pattern becomes gradually larger, making it similar to the rising sun.
