Light and drapey, versatile and soft- the Seaglass Shawl has it all. As fun to make as it is to wear, the main body of this triangular shawl works up quickly in easy TC filet and solid TC stitch. It then moves into a section of beautiful, colourful mixed stitches, and is finished off with a delicate picot edge.
And... there are kits! To make the sample for this re-release I teamed up with Petra from Fru Valborg. She hand-dyes on the the most beautiful, cruelty-free merino yarn to produce original and exquisite palettes. There simply had to be kits!
But there is of course also choice: you can either buy the pattern on its own from my Ravelry store, or purchase a kit from the Fru Valborg webstore. Any purchase of a kit will INCLUDE a copy of the pattern at a 10% discounted rate, along with 2x 100g skeins and 2x 50g skeins of either pure merino yarn or a nylon + merino blend (so you'll be able to use any leftovers for socks!). The kit will retail at 835 SEK.
We spent hours pouring over the colour combinations, and so along with the original colourway we hope there's something for everyone. Jewel or pastel, moody or light... And of course EVERYONE gets at least one speckle! Please note though: the above pictures show 4x 100g skeins, but the 2nd and 3rd contrast colours (CC2 and CC3) will come in 50g skeins. Do you have a favourite yet?
There will also be a CAL (crochet-a-long) and giveaway. More details to follow soon, so stay tuned.

MC (Azure) - 200g / 730m
CC1 (Oak Light) - 58g / 212m

Any fingering to 4-ply yarn (look for a meterage of 340 to 380m per 100g) will result in a similar drape. Use 100% cotton for a light, summery shawl or a merino/merino+silk blend for a warm and luxurious feel.
21 sts x 11 rows = 10 cm measured over main patt (3 rows of TC filet, 1 row of solid TC) after blocking.
NOTE: The original sample of this shawl, as it appeared in Crochet Now, uses TC filet st throughout for the main body of the shawl. This version uses a little less of the MC yarn and has a looser structure.
This triangular shawl is worked flat from the top down, with increases at the far edges and the tip.
Intermediate - includes simple increases and mixed stitches
The pattern includes clear written instructions, UK to US term conversion chart, and a hand-drawn illustration (PDF only).
