Rabatt is that really organized, neat, but very colourful ­flowerbed you pass by that really makes you feel like the world has a good and proper order to things! It is a two-coloured shawl knit from tip to tip, with a straight upper edge and a bent lower edge. It is framed by a nice i-cord edging that makes the orderly ­feeling complete! The leaves are 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 ­increases, decreases and 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?

Rabatt is written for a locally produced Swedish yarn from the ­local mini-mill Östergötlands ullspinneri. The yarns Visjö and ­Karamell are spun with wool from finewool sheep, a ­native ­heritage breed that has a very soft and crimpy wool ­resulting in a 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 ­https­:­//­www.­ullspinneriet.­se/.
