Time to start July with a splash of colour, this is my latest pattern – Tracks of my Rainbow Tears. This is a great project for using up small amounts of leftover bright coloured yarn, or you could do like I did and use some West Yorkshire Spinners signature 4ply in shade Rum Paradise.
This is an easy knit, the teardrops are shaped with short rows, but they are simple and it knits up really quickly. It’s knit from end to end so is also completely customisable with regards to length, you’ll need a minimum of 300yds of the main colour and 100yds of contrast colour to get a good sized shawl.
You can purchase the pattern via Ravelry here and there is a 20% discount with coupon code ‘tears’ available until the end of the 4th of July.
It’s a cold and damp day so here’s a bright rainbow shawl to brighten things up.
This is my latest pattern Leaf Anatomy, knit in 4ply / fingering weight yarn it uses from 500 – 1200 yards of yarn. My sample was knit in Knitting Goddess 4ply Britsock in the printer ink colourwheel shades, I used 600yds of yarn and the finished shawl is a large 53″ wide x 33″ deep.
Leaf Anatomy is available to purchase now, and if you use the coupon code ‘leaf’ you can get an introductory 25% discount. As always if you decide to knit this pattern I would love to see a picture.
Ok how pretty is this yarn! I have been very good and have mostly ignored all January sales, but I just couldn’t resist this one little purchase, the yarn is The Knitting Goddess 4ply Britsock and you can see it in the shop here. Now admittedly I have no idea what I am going to knit with it but I am hoping that inspiration will appear from out of nowhere, and if not then I may just frame it to admire!
