Tunde is a double knit shawl inspired by Hungarian embroidery and cross stitch patterns. The shawl is knit with two different types of yarn: mohair and boucle. These two yarns create a soft focus effect when used in color work and give the resulting design a faded etherial feel. The fabric they produce is also light, warm and very cosy.
The shawl is knit from the bottom up starting with a provisional cast on. It is increase at the beginning and the end of each RS row to create the triangle shape. The shawl is finished with a sewn bind off that is similar to a tubular bind off on one needle.
