This pattern is suitable for any multicolored yarn. You can even use it with a yarn that has a color gradient. However, you will get the best results when using a dip dyed skein that shows 3 - 5 colors. The two models shown here are knitted with fingering yarn, but you can apply the pattern to any yarn weight.

The pictures show one version made of Wollmeise Pure

and another one in Dornröschens Merinowolle

The Amun Ra shawlette is a one-skein wonder. All you have to do is follow the pattern and stop on a completed module before you run out of yarn. Of course you can make a larger project out of it and use two or one and half skein of fingering or half a skein of lace.

It is a modular knit, but there is no seaming involved as the moldules are joined together as you go. You will find ample photo tutorials on how to join the modules as well as all the other techniques you will need in case you are a beginning knitter.

All instructions are written and charted, but you can just as well follow the principle which will be explained by graphics and pictures. After knitting two or three modules it is really a no-brainer.

Although there are many ways to wear the Amun Ra, you will find instructions on how to drape it around your neck so that it stays put.

Happy Knitting
