I’m very excited to introduce you to my latest design, the Chaya Shawl and Shawlette!
This shawl is another example of my love for playing with handpainted and self-striping yarns. The knitting on this one is pretty easy: just garter stitch, dropped stitches, and yarn overs, but knitting each half of the triangle in a different direction makes it look way more complicated than it is. The shawl above was knit in Noro Kureyon Sock yarn, and only one skein makes the whole shawl! That’s a pretty awesome deal for a Christmas present if you ask me . . .
I also knit up a smaller version using one skein of Colinette Jitterbug sock yarn:
The colorway here is my favorite Colinette colorway, Bright Charcoal, and I’ve been wearing this little shawlette as a scarf. I love the way the colors play with eachother and the texture of the fabric!
Here’s a few more shots of the shawls in case you want to see them from various angles, starting with the back of the full-size:
I hope you like this new pattern as much as I do. As always, if you have any questions let me know!
