Summery Shawl Design with Lovely Texture and Drape

I've really enjoyed working on my new shawl design this past week. The stitch pattern is very meditative consisting of just a 4-row repeat, but at the same time it's also varied enough not to loose its interest. The pattern creates a beautiful drape and has a lovely texture and is therefore also very tactile. The photo below shows a close-up in which you can see the little popcorn sticking out. I love popcorns and have used them in my shawl designs before.

I'm also very happy with the shape I've created. The shawl's worked bottom up and you can wear it in many different ways. I like a versatile shawl :) I'll show you more next week as I think I will have finished it by then. For now I'll just leave you with some close-up photos. And aren't those colours gorgeous? 
The Scheepjes Whirls and Whirlettes come in so many different shades that it can be hard to choose which colours to work with. I'm always drawn to the ombre shades as I love a good fade. If you scroll down to the bottom, you can see all the cakes available and also where to shop for them if you fancy making my shawl :) I'll publish the free pattern here in about a fortnight.

Whirl and Whirlette yarn

Both yarns are a blend of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic, which makes for lightweight and breathable shawls, or any wearables really. Whirl is a gradient yarn with a very generous twist so that it works up really quickly and it helps prevent splitting. Each colour change (and there are many, which I love because it makes the gradient so subtle) is carefully tied to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches. So don’t worry if you come across quite a few ”knots”, or rather “fluffy bits”, because that means one colour thread is replaced by another colour thread that needs to be worked into the yarn. The Whirlette yarn comes in single colours, matching the Whirl shades. Below you can see all yarns available.
 
The shade cards shows all the 54 Whirl yarn cakes and 44 Whirlettes available.
