Pattern: Nelumbo


 
I've got a new shawlette pattern out this week! Nelumbo is a light, floaty shawlette, perfect for transitional wear. I designed it specifically for The Dyeing Arts Lush, which is a gorgeous 80/10/10 blend of Merino/Nylon/Cashmere. I was really inspired by this colorway, "Koi Pond," and tried to evoke water gardens in the design elements.

The shawlette is basic top-down triangular construction, with alternating bands of stockinette, garter, and eyelet stitches. The whole thing is finished off with a lightly scalloped border. As always, you can get the pattern here or in my Ravelry store, but wait, there's more!

In a partnership with The Dyeing Arts, Nelumbo is available as a kit! You can request a kit by visiting thedyeingarts.com. I'm fortunate enough that I can stock up on The Dyeing Arts stash a couple times a year in person-I absolutely love the fun sense of color, and the yarns are always a joy to knit with.

    1. Thank you! Nelumbo is a genus of water lotuses-I wanted something hearkening to aquatic plants, and Nelumbo felt right!
