Turadh – A Break in the Weather

A shawl with coloured lace stripes and chevron borderYou know those days when it’s drizzly and miserable, and then all of a sudden the clouds part and the light streams down and everything glows? That is Turadh and that is what the stripes shining through the white shawl say to me. I’ve been on quite a journey with this shawl – I’ve actually designed it twice. The first version didn’t come out as I wanted it to so I went right back to the start, reworked it all, and now I’m completely in love with the shawl! I got the mini skeins for my pattern as a set from Old Maiden Aunt and I love how they work together. My favourite is the teal green (called Jaded) so I put it in the last spot where I’d use more of it! It’s been so much fun seeing my testers choices. My favourites are the one made with gradient mini skeins, and the one with a variegated main colour and mini skeins that pick up the main colours from the variegation.

The possibilities are endless with this pattern – instead of using 6 colours, you could use two, three or four. Instead of mini skeins, you can always use leftovers and have a memory shawl.
