Virkade en till Trondheimsjal åt en väninna i ett annat garn och så här blev den 🙂 Continue reading “Trondheim no 2!”
A couple of years ago I spent some weeks in a beautiful Norwegian city called Trondheim, working as a nurse. In my free time I explored the city and surroundings and I found a fabulous yarn store. Norway is famous for wool yarn and knitting, and I brought home some gorgeous Norwegian wool yarn. This Christmas I finally got to try some of it out and the Trondheim Shawl was born. I am so happy with the result I want to share the pattern with you guys! Continue reading “The Trondheim Shawl!”
I made this shawl for my sister’s birthday using a gradient yarn.
When working with gradient yarn the yarn often has a tendency to pool leaving areas in similar colour as oposed to the stripey effect you usually want.
I had read about a really simple tecnique to avoid pooling and tried it for the first time on this shawl.
Since I think it worked really well I thought I would share the tecnique sith you!
At my last visit to the yarn store I picked upp a beautiful mohair yarn with sequins from Rowan. It is now out of stock but the name is Kidsilk Haze Glamour if you find it. 177 yards or 162 metres / 25 gr.
I bought white, turquoise and grey and I knew I wanted to make a shawl. I wanted a thin drapy one with some stich pattern but not to frilly.
