New store sample: Allira Shawl by Ambah O’Brien

allira2

The Allira Shawl by Ambah O’Brien is a beautiful crescent shaped wrap knit with one skein of a solid main colour and 5 mini-skeins for the contrast edging. We loved the original so much, we used the same Julie Asselin Leizu Fingering Gradient Set in Avalon to knit up our store sample, perfectly complemented by ARTFIL Belle in Wheat. Garter stitch enhanced by geometric lace gives this shawl a modern yet timeless look. An engaging project with gorgeous results!

EDIT: We knit this shawl at a gauge of 19 sts instead of the 18 specified in the pattern.  This allowed us to use just 1 skein of Artfil Belle despite it being less yardage than the original pattern indicates is required.
