We're excited to be able to show you a new shawl design from Jen Arnall Culliford's new book, A Year of Techniques, designed by the awesome Bristol Ivy.
Using five shades of Cumulus (a ball in each shade) this shawl is the ideal way to learn intarsia, a technique often avoided by knitters, hence the pattern's inclusion in A Year of Techniques.
The pattern is only available as part of the book, which includes accompanying tutorials on intarsia, so you can tackle the project with confidence. Cumulus works well for this project, making a lovely, light and easy to wear shawl despite using many colours and a forgiving fabric. You can buy Cumulus from one of our retailers, or if you're in the U.S. there are kits for the shawl available from Mason Dixon Knitting.
A Year of Techniques is available now as an ebook with patterns being released every month, and there is also an option to receive a print copy of them book when it is published in September. The print book will be available from Fyberspates retailers when it is published in September this year.
