Our first project for Christmas in July will be the Terraform shawl/wrap.
The designer of this versatile garment is Cheri McEwen and she has made the pattern available for free on Ravelry.
Here is the description she provides:
'Terraform is a textured shawl that can be made to any size. It is asymmetrical and can be worn in a multitude of ways. It can be wrapped, twisted, and draped to compliment just about any outfit!! Wear it like a cowl, drape it like a bandana, or just throw it over one shoulder to give a pop of color.
Instructions are included for several options. Want to use beads? It can be done. Don’t want to have to work any yarn overs? Gotcha covered! Wanna stripe it? Not a problem!!! I have included both written and charted instructions. Want some company while you knit? Stop by my group: Dartfrog Designs This will become a “go to” pattern for gift giving. It is great for using up those beautiful skeins of yarn that we are all guilty of picking up.'
We have a completed sample of this pattern at Yarn Asylum. It was knitted using the new yarn by Vice Yarns called Blurred Lines. It is a beautiful hand-dyed gradient yarn with bold and vibrant colors.
Other yarn suggestions: Berroco Folio Color, Queensland Sunshine Coast or Uluru, Lang Jawoll Magic, Berroco Sox or any of your favorite fingering weight yarns.
