Is there any better way to meet spring than in a shawl with a big bouquet of colourful tulips? Bukett is a two-coloured, ­slightly asymmetrical shawl knit sideways from one tip. The ­bouquet is shaped with short-rows, and the entire shawl is knit in ­garter stitch. This makes it a very simple project that anyone can ­execute, as long as you know how to make knit stitches, increases and know how to slip stitches.

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?

Bukett 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 from ­http:­//­ullspinneriet.­se.

The shawl uses 2 skeins of the base colour (white) and less than one skein of the contrast yarn (rainbow). The skeins of the recommended yarn are 300 m/100 g.
