An intriguing shawl formed by a unique fusion of lace knitting, stranded knitting and stacked decreases - the resulting stitch pattern looks like a painting of shells or petals, or an undulating landscape painted with a random distribution of harmonizing colors.

The pattern offers an opportunity to experiment with the colors of hand-painted yarns, randomly mixing solids and variegated yarns with speckled and semi-solids for unexpected results.

Knit on 4.5mm/US7 needles with three sets of Trio Aquarell by dibadu: numbers 402, 417, and 426
My color choice started with the red, pink and purple 402 set to which I added the lighter (and more speckled) 417, and the wider tonal range of the 426, with its light and dark shades.
Each set has 546m/597yds in three 182m/199yd skeins; total yardage of the three sets: 1638m/1791yds
I used approximately two thirds of the total yardage: 1092m/1194yds

Dimensions: approximately 71in/180cm by 23in/58cm; gauge: approximately 26 stitches and 24 rows = 4ins/10cm

Skills required: simple lace stitches, stacked decreases, stranded knitting and splicing.
