By Natalia Moreva, we have put together kits for her new Sunshine!
Please be sure to get your pattern directly from Natalia here. We offer only the yarn for this kit.
Here is what Natalia has to say about this shawl:
This shawl is worked in two steps.
The main part of it is a wide zigzag panel, which is worked sideways.
The stitches for the shawl center are picked up along the top edge of zigzag stripe.
The Yarn and Colorways
Our yarns are not the same as what the designer used for her original piece. You can see our yarns in the inset photo on the middle-bottom of the top picture and again below that.
Natalia recommends that one use fingering or sport weight yarn, three colorways.
Color A – shown in her original piece as the color of the sun (star); shown yellow, must be a solid color. You will need 440m (which is 481 yards).
Color B – this is what she used as the color of the sky; shown blue, one needs the same amount of yardage. .
And Color C – makes up the small rays at the outer edge. Natalia says one can use a gradient, speckled or variegated colorway for this one. All that is needed is 240 meters (263 yards).
The yarn is Alegria from Manos. This is 75% superwash merino/ 25% nylon, with 445 yards (405m) per 100g skein.
We have put together three colorways for this beauty.
Tumeric is a bright golden sunflower color. A real summertime smile.
Royal is a rich royal blue. Deep and delicious.
Stratus is the very pale blue of clouds way up high in the sky. Think of the dawn sky on a lovely summer day.
Your kit will include one skein of each.
Fun and oh-so-very-intriguing to knit!
