The Aloft Shawl by Rebekah Berkompas (Pattern 04 in the book)
I am really drawn to this shawl because of the detail and the integrated iCord edge. Also I don't think it's a secret that I love to knit with solid or semi-solid colours! It's also great that there are three sizes in the shawl which means if you are a newer lace knitter, you can start small!
The Yarn specified is Tukuwool Fingering which is a 100% Finnish wool yarn which suggests to me that this project is most suited to a woolier yarn! Based on this, the two yarns I have in stock that I would recommend are Baa Ram Ewe Pip Colourwork (currently on sale!) and Life in the Long Grass Hinterland. I really want to cast this on in Hinterland but I am resisting hard at the moment!
Shawl finished measurements (3 sizes). Image above shows the largest size.
Depth: 26 (32, 39)” / 66 (81, 99) cm.
Width: 52 (65, 78)” / 132 (165, 198) cm.
Yarn: 5 (6, 7) skeins of Tukuwool Fingering by Tukuwool (100% Finnish wool, 200 m – 50 g), colourway Auri.
Approx. 1000 (1200, 1400) m of fingering weight yarn.
To make in Baa Ram Ewe Pip Colourwork (116m per 25g ball): 9 (11, 13) 25g balls. I'd probably go for either Malham or Nostell!
To make in Life in the Long Grass Hinterland (350m per 100g skein): 3 (4, 4) skeins. Cornflower or Ultra for a brighter colour or Oud Wood for a gorgeous neutral look! Forthe largest size, it is exactly 4 skeins so if you don't fancy yarn chicken, a 5th skein may be necessary. You can always make a gorgeous matching pair of mittens with any left over yarn!
Needles: US 3.5 mm 100 cm circular needles.
When substituting yarns, always swatch! ; )
