Monday coffee break! Come dream and scheme with us.
Here’s a lightning round of four patterns that really get us smiling.
The unifying theme here? For one thing, they’re all shawls, that canvas onto which designers put their signatures.
Another thing: texture! We’re loving the look of these gorgeous wraps. Clean, clever, colorful, modern. We’ve noted yarns from the MDK Shop that would be great pairings.
Nonomi Shawlette by Nahoko Masubuchi
A sweet snack, with worsted weight yarn making this a lush little project.
Cold Spring by Laura Aylor
Oh, the simplicity of this little shawl. There are few things as lovely as knits and purls getting along so well.
Wave of Change Shawl by Denise Bayron
A perfect thing, the sort of wrap you will wear forever. Or keep knitting and it becomes a blanket. Glorious when paired with a beautiful solid yarn.
SSP by Isabell Kraemer
Oh, there she goes again, giving us a new set of textures and colors to play with. If you’ve never made an Isabell Kraemer shawl, this is a fine place to start.
Yarn idea from the Shop: our beloved favorite, Rowan Felted Tweed.
For A bright palette select 3 balls of Aluminum, 2 Pink Bliss, 1 Maritime, 1 Clay, 2 French Mustard.
In the MDK Shop
For an antiqued palette select 3 Balls of Ancient, 2 Iolite, 1 Seasalter, 1 Stone, 2 Treacle.
Please note! Following Isabell’s suggestion on the pattern page, our Felted Tweed palette swaps out C5 (Color 5) for more of C1 (Color 1). That is, use C1 in the pattern where C5 is specified.
Here endeth our Monday Spring Fling. Which design catches your eye? We’re having a hard time deciding.
