Kelebek’s Sept. KAL Shawl
Iris Schreier of ArtYarns ran a KAL on Ravelry during September and designed a pattern to feature her Cloud Merino yarn plus the Merino Cloud gradients sets using the same type of yarn. The pattern may become available at a later date, but currently is only available to KAL participants. However, many of her other designs are available and are equally engaging.
I added a few silver-lined gold beads to the i-cord edge. I knit it up as written on size 7 needles plus 3 (3!) 60″ cables toward the end. I am a very loose knitter, but the pattern features slip stitches and I was concerned the fabric might become too dense if I dropped my customary 3 needle sizes to get gauge. It was an easy knit, featuring no-wrap short rows and an exciting interplay of pattern and color between the main color and the gradients. I used all but 2 grams of the main color, and in the most needle-clenching gradient, had less than 1 gram left. Yikes! The others had plenty of lee way.
