Grab some yarns that light your imagination on fire and play with colour in Kimba Shawl. Anything goes in this fun project – speckles or semi-solids, a gradient or a fade, wild contrasts or classic neutrals. The shawl starts with a garter body shaped with short rows to form a crescent shape. The dramatic flames of lace that form the border are worked in four colours, making for engrossing knitting as you race to the next stripe. Choose from the small, still generous, size or knit the large for a piece that can be wrapped and worn in a variety of ways.

Pattern includes fully written instructions accompanied by Lace charts.

Available in English, French and Italian.
