I designed the Cumulous Cloud Wrap / shawl with the spring clouds in mind, the way they seem to be almost not there one moment and then thick and fluffy the next. I love the interesting shapes they make in the sky and they way puff and billow across the sun so you can be in dazzling sunlight one moment and in the darkest shade the next.
First published in Knit Now magazine, the wrap is knitted from bottom up and flat; there is no shaping or picking up stitches and it uses a garter stitch base so its perfect for knitters who are new to lace shawls. The pattern is worked over four rows with a change of yarn after each repeat. The two different weights of yarn creates an interesting drape as well as adding a sense of drama to the shawl.
It is one size and takes approx 150g of sport weight yarn and 25g of lace weight.
The pattern has been Tech Edited and Tested.
The Cowl comes in one size and uses 150g approx of sport weight and around 25g of lace weight. I combined a smooth sport weight with a mohair lace weight to add a textural element as well as a change in colours.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.
