Another special look, created by Lyudmila Aksenik, this Liana Shawl is a marvelous way to play with colors and short-rows.  


Get the pattern directly from the designer on her Ravelry page here.  What we have put together are some lovley yarns to use for this shawl. 


The Design

Here is what Lyudmila writes:

Liana shawl is a triangular shawl worked starting from the top right corner and increasing stitches every second row. The decorative panel (border) is shaped with short-rows forming Liana print.

Yarn and Colorways

All that is needed is any fingering weight yarn 437-460yds (400-420m) per 100g/3.5oz in 2 contrasting colors.  Our yarn is not the same as the ones Lyudmila used for her original.  You can see ours in the inset photo in the upper right-hand corner on the top picture on this page and again below that. 

Our two fingering weight yarns are from Madelinetosh.

The lighter colorway is dyed onTML+Copper, with 90% superwash merino + 8% acrylic + 2% stellina (subtle threads of copper).  There are 420 yards per skein. The colorway is called Calligraphy and is a gentle melding of pastel lilac, peach, and pink hues.  

The darker colorway is dyed on Tosh Mo Light, 80% superwash merino + 20% mohair, again with 420 yards/100g skein.  This colorway is called Iris and is an almost-solid of varying tones of a rich purple.
