For those of you who love lace, shawls and delicate accessories, you’re going to love this new pattern. Designed by Deborah Frank who designs and publishes patterns under the title ‘Oblivious Knits’, Blight is a beautiful shawl featuring TUT as a recommended yarn.
Blight is a triangular lace shawl, knit from the center top down to the bottom edges. It uses one skein of fingering weight yarn, but could easily be made larger by working more repeats of the charts, although additional yarn will be necessary. The size can also be increased by changing needle/ yarn size.
The pattern calls for a skein of Heavenly Fingering, a delicious base that is perfect for such a luxurious knit. Each skein is approx 100g of fingering weight yarn that blends 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere. Supremely soft, it has a slight shine and takes dye beautifully. It has lovely drape, making it perfect for shawls. The sample is shown here in Nimbostratus.
A beautiful pattern Deborah, thank you for using TUT yarn!
