A beautiful new design by Nim Teasdale, (and here I quote Nim): 

Zeon is a striking semi-circular shawl with a textured pattern of radiating lines making hearts which flow and expand toward the outer edge of the shawl.

(Though one of her test knitters mentioned that she sees Escher-like fish floating through the design and honestly, that is what I see as well.)

Yarn and Colorways

Nim further says: The design suits any blocking-friendly fingering weight yarn in a pair of contrasting or complementary solid, semi-solid, or gradient colours.

She recommends between 711 - 984 yards (650 - 900 m). 

We put together some kits that we really like.  Mind you, this is not not not the yarn that Nim used in her original piece. 

Each of our kits consists of:

1. One ball of Freia's Ombre Shawl Balls, specially dyed by Tina Whitmore.  This is a 100% merino with 430 yards (393 meters)/100g .  Each ball is a long color run, gradually changing hues. We brought in two of Tina's newest colorways. 

2. One skein of Malabrigo's Sock, a plied 100% sueprwash merino with 440 yards (401m)/ 100g.  These are almost-solid colorways. 

Thus you will have a total of 870 yards.

Kit A:

1.  Ombre Shawl Ball in Chaparral, blending from a  pale greyed sky blue gradually changing into an olive and then a soft sand (or vice versa, depending on how the yarn ball had been wound). 

Tina writes about this colorway:

Inspired by the colors of the rocky Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Chaparral has soft blended shades of Linen, Olive and Glass in a muted neutral palette.

2.  Sock in Lettuce, a bright and happy lime. 

*****

Kit B: 

1. Ombre Shawl Ball in Damask.  This gives a lovely Victorian feel, ranging from an aubergine into a taupe. 

Here is what Tina writes about this colorway: 

Imagine an antique shop in an old part of town, or a flea market full of fabulous finds - this colorway makes me think of heavy silk drapery. The soft Purple and Papyrus come together and speak of elegance and secret stories.

2.  With that one, we have Sock in Violeta Africana, a deep rich purple.

The Pattern

Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern, nor has the pattern cost been factored into the kit.

I know some knitters prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Nim via her Ravelry web page. In that case, make sure the drop-down menu is set to "No Pattern Needed."

Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy, then the "Pattern" drop-down menu should be 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 usually do that right before your kit is shipped).

Make sure that both drop-down menus are set as you would like before you check out.
