Ripples

With multi-colored shawls all the rage these days, I wanted to make one too. (Bandwagon!) But I’m not in love with the mostly geometric lines of most of them. When I saw Ripples, I knew that was the one for me. With softly undulating lines, it was perfect.

I used the yarn I bought at Rhinebeck last year – Dirt Water Dyeworks Bertha – which is a delightfully soft yarn with just enough cashmere. I picked the yarn specifically for this project and, in theory, I have enough to knit it again, with the colors reversed. (Ooh, planning!)

Ripples

I love the way the colors go together. I love the softness. I love the rippling effect of the lines in the shawl, accomplished by strategically placed short row sections.

The only thing I don’t love is that it’s hard to wear it in a way that shows off all these wonderful features!
