Torquata is named for the Eucalyptus Torquate or Coral Gum, an Australian species with beautiful flowers in coral pink shades, a colour theme represented beautifully by Miss Babs yarn who have created the perfect gradient set for this design. Use a gradient set or mix and match mini skeins for a fun project in both the planning and knitting stage and will be a perfect way to use up some of those partial skeins in your stash too.
Knit on the bias, resulting in an asymmetrical wrap that is easy to wear in a variety of ways. The simple lace makes for a perfect first lace project or a relaxing knit for a seasoned knitter.
Torquata is a part of the Chroma Collection; a series of nine shawl patterns, all featuring gradient yarns.
