Wow and wow again.

By Susanna IC, here is a new design called Maritima.

Get the pattern directly from Susanna on her Ravelry page hereThis kit consists of the yarn (and possibly beads) only.

Here is what Susanna writes:

Maritima is a striking crescent shawl worked in a traditional Shetland pattern reminiscent of rippling ocean waves adorned with lacy foam.

The shawl is worked from the top down and shaped into a versatile crescent with easy garter stitch short rows; the short row wraps can be left unworked, hidden within the garter texture.

Maritima uses six gradient mini skeins of fingering weight yarn and, to make things simple, the color not in use can be carried along the edge for minimal finishing.

The Yarn and Colorways

Our kits are not made up of the same yarn or colors that Susanna used in her original.  Basically what is needed is a set of six colors that blend well one to the next, totalling 670 yards (613 m) in fingering weight.  

You can see what we have for this kit in the inset photo upper righthand corner of the top picture and again below that. 

We have a lovely colorway, dyed in what Kelly refers to as "deconstructed." In other words, each skein is its own unique color and the knitting will proceed from one block to the next as in Susanna's original.

 We brought in a section of our Magic Mirror circle, from 1 to 6, going from a deep rich teal and gradually moving into the blue range. This will give a look very similar to the original, btw.

The yarn for this one, from The Unique Sheep, is their Kiri, an 80/20 blend of superwash merino/ tussah silk, with six skeins each giving 145 yards.  So you will have a total of 870 yards, well more than you need to be comfortable. 


No, Susanna didn't put beads on this shawl but if you would like some, we set up the drop-down menu labeled Kits so you could add about 20g (roughly 240) size 6/0 beads to play with and place where it appeals to you. 

If you have a preference on bead color, tell me.  Otherwise I will choose for you.
