Eremophila, also known as Emu Bush, is one of my favourite native plants to grow and admire. They come in a beautiful range of colours from purple, to pinks to golden which are the colours I have chosen for my Eremophila Shawls. The pattern provides a choice between DK and fingering weight shawls and the fingering weight version can be knit in a single colour or with ten mini skeins. Worked top-down, the symmetrical triangle shape is easy to wear. Chevron patterning and eyelets make this a fun and satisfying project to knit and a dramatic finished result.

Eremophila Kits available from Koigu Yarn and their LYS retailers. Original colour kits and 2 fresh colourways have been added. Ask your local LYS for more info.
