Showcase a gorgeous skein or two with Kinta, a light shawlette that will add a touch of easy to wear flair to your wardrobe. Worked from the bottom up, Kinta features an easy to memorise eyelet mesh pattern that is readily adapted to make the most of your yardage. Resulting in a V-shaped shawlette with tapered ends.
Kinta looks equally fabulous knit in a solid colour, gradient yarn or that special skein of hand dyed yarn you’ve been saving. Alternately, use a linen, cotton or hemp yarn for the perfect summer version of Kinta. Knit in fingering weight yarn, Kinta is easily adapted to suit your yarn quantity, with sizes written for one or two skeins.
