Fernweh Shawl Kit - Pink Version


A shawl to knit while dreaming of exploring the world, of traveling and meeting faraway friends.
 Use three treasured hand-dyed speckled or semisolid skeins of fingering weight yarn – a lighter one in the foreground, a darker one in the background, and a color pop – to tide you over the longing of Fernweh.

The Fernweh shawl is knit top-down in two-color brioche and one-color pearl brioche, with a garter stripe border and i-cord edges. The textural pearl brioche intersects the vertical two-colour brioche lines, broken at the border by horizontal garter stripes.

We are also going to be hosting a KAL together and info about that will be released next week, time frames/prizes/fun stuff!

The pattern is available on Ravelry and for those who cannot use Ravelry right now, Susanne has added a direct link to purchase and download the pattern from her website: http://www.sosu.at/en/portfolio/fernweh-en/
