Aviendha Shawl Kit
Claudia Handpainted Yarn have been producing their sumptuous skeins of hand dyed yarn since 2005, and are based in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley region of Virginia, surrounded by mountains and rolling hills. This gorgeous kit contains the pattern for the lovely Aviendha Shawl (designed by Melanie Berg), and 3 skeins of Contemplation Linen Lace from Claudia Handpainted Yarns.
Whether you decide to treat yourself or buy as a gift, this beautiful shawl is a simple-to-knit assymetrical triangle, which uses graduated stripes to achieve a beautifully balanced result, and the kit is available in a carefully chosen selection of complementary shades for you to choose from.
Contemplation Linen Lace is a gorgeous 100% linen laceweight yarn which has been painted by hand. No two skeins are exactly the same, so your shawl will be truly unique. The linen yarn loses any initial stiffness after washing, and will continue to soften and increase in drapability with use, so your shawl will be a treasured essential for many years to come.
Knitted in garter stitch and starting with the longest edge (so the rows get shorter and faster to knit as you progress!), the design is easy enough for a beginner or would be perfect as an on-the-go project when you don’t want to concentrate too hard on your work.
When complete, your shawl will measure approximately 71“ (180cm) along top edge and 20“ (50cm) at the widest point, and you will need a 3.5mm (US4) circular knitting needle (due to the large number of stitches). Due to the nature of the yarn, handwash or dry clean only.
