  • Yummy!

  • I made the scarf and love it! Perhaps now the shawl. Holding the second color was so easy for such a great marled effect.

  • Looking forward to knitting the shawl, but if you restocked the Rowen Earth Wrap, I would buy and knit it pro to!

  • Looks like fun

  • Kay, Jennifer Crandall here. I love this pattern. Is it in a Field Guide? If so, how do I purchase it. Thx for letting me know.

    • The kit includes the pdf of Field Guide No. 6: Transparency linked above where you’ll find the Albers Shawl pattern.

  • Anni Albers is my inspiration, as well at Guntl Stolz, both were part of the Bauhaus School….. Not able to be part of the architecture program, but headed the weaving…… New museum in Dessen, Germany has a great deal of their work…..
    Books abound….. I really love this motif,,,, hope there are more to come!!! Suzanne

  • I got so excited about this thinking I could use three gorgeous skeins of greys and blue from my stash and get the background color from mdk…and my stash is silk cloud, not kidsilk haze. Different compositions so don’t think it will work, and wouldn’t think of trying and then frogging either yarn. Still recovering from the last time I tried that! Gorgeous shawl, still scheming!

  • I keep thinking about this pattern, especially because it looks like many of the variations can be knit without breaking the contrast yarn. I wonder about the kits though. It seems you would need 3 to 4x more background color than contrast balls since the background is used across every row.

  • The one pictured here looks wider than the original to me. Is this the pattern or a new version?
