Stripe Study Shawl Knitalong

Stripe Study Shawl Knitalong

It’s no secret that I’m ridiculously fond of watchalongs and readalongs, so you can probably imagine how excited I am about this – taking part in my very first knitalong!

This knitalong is an initiative by Crafts from the Cwtch and Misadventures in Craft, so please do visit their blogs for more details and inspiration. The Stripe Study Shawl pattern is designed by Veera Välimäki.

The yarn I’ll be using is Kauni 8/2 Effektgarn in colour EME (pinks and reds) and Kauni 8/2 solid black; both 100% wool. I’ve never used this yarn before, but chose it because when I was browsing finished projects on Ravelry I was absolutely stunned by how amazing the variegated colours looked combined with the geometrical shapes of this pattern. It’s reasonably priced, too.

Kauni 8/2 EME

I ordered the yarn online today, so it should be here in a couple of days. Can’t wait to cast on :)

Patience, grasshopper!
