This is a very simple post today.
We’re taking a peek at our Caravan, Crave Yarn’s buttery yarn—how it looks like all knitted up in some of the sequences that appear in Cecelia Campochiaro’s Corrugated Shawl from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5: Sequences.
Remember the fundamental thing going on in Cecelia’s world of sequence knitting: knits and purls will make beautifully complex fabrics with remarkably little effort.
The Corrugated Shawl features 16 different sequences. Texture is the name of the game.
Nuance? So Much Nuance!
Here we have Nuance. Is it bluegreen? Greenblue? Sage? NO IT IS NOT SAGE PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF WOOL DO NOT MISTAKE THIS FOR SAGE. Is it a color that is almost impossible to photograph? Yes!
This is Sequence No. 13 from the Corrugated Shawl. It’s a mistake rib/accordion pattern. I’d tell you the sequence but then I’d have to shoot you. Let’s just say it involves knits and purls.
In the Realm of Teal
This shade, Realm, may appear to your eye somewhat similar to its cousin above, Nuance. Your eye would be correct, though Nuance has nuances that take it closer to the realm of sage than the realm of the teal in Realm. While not being sage. GOT IT?
This is Sequence No. 10 from the Corrugated Shawl, a lovely broken rib pattern. With knits. And purls. In clever combinations.
This is Franklin, a gray that we declare medium gray. Bluegray? Grayblue? It has a certain warmth to it. Not a coolth. This is Sequence No. 5, a broken welting pattern. How do you make it? Knits, purls, then some more of that.
This is Tilly. The most delicious, rich brown we’ve ever offered. If subtle, deep color is your jam, then Tilly is pretty much the ultimate. This is Sequence No. 16 from the Corrugated Shawl, an all-over pattern. It is mind blowing to see the sequence that results in this subtle texture.
Yes, it’s knits and purls! How did you guess?
