A Heart Of Yarn

Well, not really. It is a heart of tassels. It holds my latest shawl in bright red. I am absolutely and completely satisfied with the outcome.

I have been knitting a few of these shawls and has been experimenting with how to get a wide wingspan and still have sort of a shawl.

And this time I got it exactly as I wanted.

I followed the pattern until I had 167 stitches.

Then I started increasing four stitches on right side and two stitches on wrong side until there were 209 stitches.

And then I started increasing four stitches on every row.


Soft, red, warm and bright. Just like a sunrise. Just like a happy day. Just like love.

  1. Det er utroligt som det løfter at bruge lidt perler på. Har du ikke skiftet dine pinde. Var de første ikke mindre?

    1. Tak Dorte - ja og så er det sjovt hvor overrasket folk bliver når de ser det. Altså når jeg bruger sjalerne. De første sjaler strikkede jeg med mindre pinde. Men det her garn er tykkere så det passede bedre med tykkere pinde...

  3. Dette var en skikkelig fargeklatt! Nydelig til hvitt. Kjempefint det du har laget under også som matcher så fint til smykket. Perler og dusker gjør virkelig susen på disse enkle sjalene. :)
