We were able to get this yarn at a marvelous price -- we share the savings with you!
A most intriguing scarf design by Jennifer Dassau of the Knitting Vortex -- Jennifer is the designer of the most unusual Venomous Tentacular, and here she presents another fun fun fun design.
This is the second in her series of garter shawls exploring non-traditional shaping with short rows.
Here is how she describes it:
Rondelay is a one-skein garter shawl constructed from three sequential half rounds or rondels, which grow from cast on stitches using short rows and strategically placed radial YO increases.
Each rondel builds upon the previous one, creating a finished semi-circular shape that drapes beautifully as it wraps around the shoulders.
Designed to show off the colors of a variegated or hand dyed skein, Rondelay looks equally fantastic in a solid color.
The finished size is about 50" long, with the widest depth roughly 9".
Yarn and Colorway
The original yarn used (that you see in these photos) were Malabrigo Yarn Sock (100% superwash merino, 440 yards), 1 skein. Shown in Indiecita. This sample used approximately 410 yards of light fingering weight yarn.
We are not offering that yarn. You can see what we have put together in the inset photo on the lower right-and corner of the top picture and then again below that.
Our yarn is from Araucania, their Ñuble Paints, named after the scenic Ñuble River in Chile. This is a light fingering weight yarn, with 545 yards (500m) per 100g skein. It is made up of 75% wool + 25% silk and feels marvelous.
We brought in three colorways:
1. Aqua Pura is a play on blues, with an almost glowing look to it, ranging from turquoise to a deep navy and all the blues in between.
2. Santa Rosa is a summer garden, with varying rose hues as well as some violet and watermelon and peach.
3. Sangria Sour is a melody of wine tones, blending rich fuchsia and punch plus some red-violets with a bit of a twist of strawberry.
Each kit will include one skein of yarn and your choice of how to get the pattern (see below).
The kit does not automatically include the pattern nor has its cost been included.
You might choose to get the pattern directly from Jennifer via her Ravelry web page. This will ensure that you get any future updates and also it is saved in your Ravelry library. In that case, set the Pattern drop-down menu to "No Pattern Needed."
Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy, please make sure the drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you via email (just be aware that it is not automatic; I have to manually send it to you and generally do that right before shipping your kit).
