The Kalari Shawl by Australian designer, Ambah O'Brien, is one of our new favorite fade projects! Knit using just 1 of our fingering weight Fiberstory Gradient Sets, this perfectly sized triangle shawl is a lightweight yet substantial accessory that you can wear comfortably year round.
Kalari is a simple mix of garter and eyelet sections. The shawl is worked top-down from the center back. Loop West staffer Joanna knit our Kalari, and she worked each color in order from light to dark. She changed colors when she had about 6" of each mini skein left. For the final skein, she bound off after one pattern repeat to be sure she would have enough yarn.
If you're looking to venture into lace knitting, Kalari is a good place to start. If you can knit, yarn over, increase and decrease, you are ready to give this a try. By the end, you'll be an eyelet expert!
Gradient knits are so satisfyingly fun! Our perfectly coordinated Fiberstory Gradient Sets are tailored to deliver an effortless gradient knitting experience. Each set contains 7 ombre dyed skeins totaling a generous 560 yards of Fiberstory Fave Sock a 2-ply, next-to-skin soft, merino yarn that delivers fabulous stitch definition.
