New Pattern: Varna Shawl

Varna Shawl is released as part of Knotions December 2019 issue. Knit using one skein of Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball in Frische colorway  and two skeins of Knit Picks Stroll in Ash colorway. Shawl is knit using mosaic colorwork technique, in which you work with only one color every row.

Varna, ‘color’ in Sanskrit, is a celebration of variegated yarn with long repeats. Paired with a neutral, solid colored yarn, the shawl lets the variegated yarn be the hero, while the solid yarn remains the unsung one.

The Varna Shawl is knit from one corner to the other edge, starting with few stitches in a row and gradually increasing on one side, to get the tapered triangular shape.   It uses mosaic knitting, in which every row is worked with only one color, making the Varna Shawl a mindless and enjoyable knit.
