Shades of Purple
Shades of Purple is the title of the all time best album by Deep Purple. Remember? Well, I do… It’s also the name of my newest shawl pattern.
You can use any kind of wool as long as you have 2 different colours to mix. I’ve used 4 balls of Wensleydale DK weight wool in purple and blue.
Any colour, gauge, yarn weight, needle size that suits you and your knitting will be fine.
The shawl is knit from the top down starting with the small triangle at the neck. It’s an easy knit (garter and stockinette stitches plus increases) but not boring because of the shadow knitting (a.k.a. Ilusion knitting).
When the first little triangle is finished continue with shadow knitting until the shawl is large enough or you’ve used all the wool.
Add a border - lace or picot or just a simple crochet…
