AERIA
Aeria is a two-coloured shawl knit sideways from tip to tip. The leaves are shaped with short-rows, and the entire shawl is knit in garter stitch. Be warned - this shawl is highly addictive!

On the first half of the shawl, increases and decreases are done on the wrong-side rows. On each wrong-side row, it increases by 1 st at the beginning of the row (bottom end). On every second wrong-side row, it also decreases by 1 st at the end of the row (top end).

On the second half of the shawl, increases and decreases are done on the right-side rows. On each right-side row, it decreases by 1 st at the beginning of the row (bottom end). On every second right-side row, it also increases by 1 st at the end of the row (top end).

This shawl is perfect for your handspun yarn in various colours, combined with a plain white or solid colour yarn. Or perhaps a bunch of mini skeins as the contrast colour?

Aeria is written for a locally produced Swedish yarn from the ­local mini-mill Östergötlands ullspinneri. The yarns Visjö and Karamell are spun from wool from finewool sheep, a ­native heritage breed that has a very soft and crimpy wool resulting in fabric that can be worn next to the skin. The ­colourway Karamell is a gorgeous ­gradient yarn that goes through the colours about three times per skein. It can be ordered on ­https­:­//­www.­ullspinneriet.­se/.

An alternative yarn is Ullcentrum 2-ply, another yarn from ­Swedish heritage breed sheep. The yarn is available in several different gradient yarns, where Lappland or Regnbåge would be good options for the leaves. In Ullcentrum’s case, the gradient goes through the colours about once per skein. The yarn can be purchased through http://www.ullcentrum.com.
