I'm proud to introduce my latest pattern, now available for sale at Chiagu: Onda!
This rectangular stole is knit with 7 colors of Koigu KPPPM which shade from light to dark. I was thinking of the ocean when I knit this, and found great colors to capture that mood of waves crashing on the beach. The shawl would look equally great in other color progressions: I can imagine it in shades of green, for example, or bright reds and oranges. . . the options are endless!
The lace pattern is a straight-forward version of Feather and Fan so this pattern would be great for a beginning lace knitter to get her feet wet!
I spent part of the weekend organizing my stash and then a brilliant idea hit me: Why not sell KPPPM kits for this pattern?
The kits consist of 7 skeins of Koigu that I handpicked from my stash to work well in this design. When you order a kit, you will receive the yarn (I can wind it if you'd like me to, just ask in the special instructions) plus the pattern as a hard copy, and the skeins will be marked 1 through 7 so you know what order to knit them in.
Since most of my stash was bought before the latest price increase, I've decided to price the kits at $84 (which breaks down to $12 for each ball) and include the pattern for free. Shipping will be $5 and the kits will go out via USPS Priority Mail.
There are currently 5 color choices (and of course, each kit is unique and will never be replicated!) and I will add more if there's a demand. If you're looking for a certain look or color and none of these are what you're imagining, email me and I'll see what I can do. There's still plenty of Koigu where that came from! I figure I can share the wealth. ;o)
As always if you have any questions or need help, just email me! Thanks!
(oh, BTW, "onda" means "wave" in Portuguese)
