Liinu Shawl

10:13 AM

The last weekend of October might mean Halloween for some people, but for me and several other Finnish knitters it's the Kässäkerho Pom Pom SUPERviikonloppu, a knit festival in Kuopio. This year, my contribution to the festival is this Liinu Shawl. It's a collaboration with Kässäkerho Pom Pom, knitted in Merino Singles dyed by the lovely Liinu Kekäläinen who also gave her name to the shawl.

Pattern: Liinu Shawl
Yarn: Kässäkerho Pom Pom Merino Single (colorways Minttupehmis 89 g, Flamingo 89 g, and Omenankukka 88 g)
Needles: 3,25 mm (US 3)

Liinu Shawl is made of three sections: first, a kite-shaped beginning with eyelet stripes. Second, you continue with half of the stitches and form an asymmetric triangle. Third, you pick up stitches along the side of the second part and join them with the remaining stitches of the first section and knit a lace panel. This shawl lets you play with colors and the interesting shape makes knitting fun!

This October has been very productive shawl-wise. With three new shawl designs out (Flying Jib Shawl, Tiger Flower and Liinu Shawl), I think it's time to concentrate on sweater design. I have two ideas in mind, and I have agreed on a collaboration on one of them so stay tuned for more!
