Ewin is a simple triangular-shaped shawl that features, in the first section, simple rows of stockinette and a couple of rows of garter stitch. I really wanted to keep things simple with this design, and enjoy the texture of the yarn between my fingers. Less is more!

The second section on the other-hand will require a little bit more attention as the colorwork part is worked on both the right side and the wrong side of the fabric. But there’s nothing complicated here.

Finally a couple more rows of garter stitch, and a very relaxed picot- bind off edging.

That’s it!

As for the yarn, I have used Eco View Fiber Mill’s Haley base, which is 65% Merino, 25% Alpaca and 10% mohair, chunky goodness.

Working with Eco View Fiber Mill has been a wonderful experience as a designer. I have been really touched by their story, and by all the work that they put into developing yarns that are as I have said, sustainable and locally made (in NC/USA). You can read more about them here if you want to.
