No longer a MKAL, Layer Cake has been completed, frosting all all!  

A wonderful shawl, to make and to wear. 

 

****

This design is called Layer Cake and this is how Sivia describes it: 

Layer Cake is a lively shawl confection in two contrasting colors with beads. It begins with a nautilus shell-shaped center section, then to layers of texture, stripes, and two beaded lace sections.

This shawl, originally released in clues for a Mystery Knitalong, is a fun, engaging knit! It has a slightly asymmetrical shape which can be draped in many ways.

The Yarn and Colorways

Sivia suggests two contrasting skeins of fingering weight yarn.  What she used was Hazel Knits Entice (70% Superwash Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 400 yds/100 g) in the dark brown Fudge colorway and Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn (90% Superwash Merino, 10% Nylon, 434 yds/100 g) in the Pistachio variegated one. 

Please note that the yarn and colorways we offer here are not the same as these.  

Ella Rae Lace Merino is a 100% SuperWash Extrafine Merino Wool fingering weight yarn with 460 yards per 100 grams.  It has a tight twist and shows stitch work beautifully.  

1.  Chocolate + Jade/Gold/Aqua:  In this set the Chocolate skein is a deep brown; the Jade/Gold/Aqua is a striking variegated that looks awesome with it without blending.  Very rich. 

(The earlier kits have all sold out; sorry.)

The Beads 

Of course, beads will be included in your kit.

More than the 512 needed size 6/0 beads will be included in your kit. 

The beads could be striking contrasts with the yarn.  Silver Lined Crystal is a great neutral that looks like small stars.  Or for the warmer color combos, a Silver Lined Gold could look great. 

Or perhaps a color in beads to mirror one of the colors of the yarns used.  There are so many really gorgeous possibilities....

 If you have a preference yourself let me know.  Otherwise I will choose for you.

The Pattern

The pattern is not automatically part of the kit.

You can purchase the pattern directly from Sivia on her Ravelry page here.

Or you might ask us to print it out for you and include it with your yarns and beads -- in that case, set the drop-down menu to Printed Copy.

Alternatively I can email you the pattern; it won't be saved in your Ravelry library but you will have it and can save it where you choose.  For this, choose PDF File on the drop-down "Pattern" menu.
