We just finished a Dotted Rays by Stephen West using our new Loop yarn: Linden! The generous size and incredible softness make this a wrap you're going to want to wear year round!
Linden is one of those yarns that instantly elevates the enjoyment of any project. The yarn is whisper soft and positively glides through your fingers, making your knitting that much more relaxing and enjoyable!
We've house-dyed Linden in a select, 26-color palette that includes 7 brand new shades for spring. There's something magical about this blend and how it absorbs and reflects our tonal dying process. We can't wait to see all of the inspired knits you'll create with it!
This sculptural garter stitch shawl features a built-in i-cord edge and is worked outward from its center using short rows, "ray" shaped wedges, and arched yarn-over eyelet columns.
This pattern is well-written, and we've found that stitch markers can help simplify the short row placement process. You'll find your groove and quickly get into a rhythm, making this shawl a meditative knit to curl up with on the couch or stitch on while traveling!
We knit the large size and used 3 skeins of Linden (in cherry). The small size calls for 2 skeins and encourages knitters to be creative - will you use 1 color of Linden or multiple colors for stripes?
To knit your own Dotted Rays shawl, you'll need:
- 3 skeins of Loop Linden
- US 6 40" circular needles
- Stitch markers
- Dotted Rays
