This one really sings to me.
By Pam Jemelian, Icing is a shawl that will keep you saying, "Just one more row...". :-)
Please be sure to get the pattern directly from the designer's Ravelry page here. This web page offers yarn and beads to make it with.
Here is what Pam writes:
Like icing on a birthday cake, the Icing Shawl with its rows of slip-stitch “piping” will adorn your shoulders in something to celebrate!
It is an asymmetrical shawl knit on the bias, and it looks fabulous when knitted with 2 complimentary colors and one of them is a variegated yarn.
German Short Rows are used to form small waves of stockinette in a sea of garter stitch stripes.
I knit this with approximately 350 yards of variegated yarn and 400 of a solid yarn in fingering weight, but this pattern could also be knit in anything from fingering through sport weight yarn.
My shawl measures just over 7 feet end to end, and 19 inches at its widest point. Full written instructions, row counts, and several video help links are included in the pattern
The Yarn and Colorways
We did not duplicate exactly the yarn or colorways that Pam used in her original. You can see what we have in the inset photo on the top picture and again below that.
The variegated yarn is from Madeline Tosh and is their Tosh Merino Light, 100% merino wool with 420 yards/ skein. The colorway is a brand new one called Winter's Rest and includes ivory and cream, pink and gray, navy and a few speckles of black.
The solid color is from Mountain Colors, their Crazy Foot, 90% superwash merino/ 10% nylon, with 420 yards/ skein. The colorway is Raven and is (yes, you guessed it) a rich black.
One skein of each will be included in each kit, well more than enough to make this shawl.
