A friend at knitting group wanted to knit a Faroese type shawl for friend of hers as a gift and couldn't find a pattern to fit what she had in mind.  The recipient has a beautiful house in monochromes and soft neutrals.   To match in with her friend's colour choices, we looked at natural and neutral shades.

To work up the design quickly, and because I really feel the cold, I made the prototype in chunky weight yarn, but the pattern will include instructions for both Chunky and Aran weight yarns, but really as long as the central 'spine' is the right width, you could make it in any weight of yarn.     I've used the twin leaf panel in a laceweight shawl with 6mm needles and it works beautifully.

But back to the Faro-ish, I chose Schoeller & Stahl Filzi, a pure and very soft wool in the colour Braunmel, it's a cool brown shade and has a contemporary look.     The design for the central spine of the shawl is a twined leaf pattern but there will be an option for a pretty cabled choice too!.

The chunky version of the yarn used 10 balls of Filzi, total cost £24.80 to create a warm, smooshy and stylish heirloom piece.  I'm so pleased with it.   If you fancied a multi coloured, machine washable version, try the James Brett Marble Chunky, it'd use two balls I think but I'll test that before the pattern is released.  :-)

We're delighted to see our subscriber copy of Knit Now, Issue 18.    It's packed with exciting knitting projects as usual and this one features several of our yarns and some of our own in-house patterns.

First up is the Rhiannon Bolero, made in lusciously soft Austermann Kid Silk (we used shade 06, raspberry) and Austermann Palila (in silver) to add a bit of bling.   The boloro features an eyelet pattern, puff sleeves and is the perfect cover up for cooler Summer nights or on holiday.  The yarn is super light weight and it'll pack to almost nothing in your suitcase!
