Rippling into Autumn

I’m so excited to share Tuinn Bheaga with you at last! It’s been very popular on Instagram over the last couple of weeks so I hope you’re as happy to see it as I am to share it!

There have, of course, been a few bumps along the way – designing is rarely plain sailing. The first yarn I had bought for the design didn’t work out, so I had to order this one, which did work much better for my plans (isn’t it stunning?).

Don’t worry though, the original yarn is already being knitted up for another pattern – nothing is wasted!

In the second photo in the carousel, you can see that I had two attempts at the setup section – the first (on the bottom) kept the increase rate the same for the setup and shawl, the second (on top) has a slightly faster increase rate for the set up which blends into the rest of the shawl better so that’s the version I kept.

The yarn for Tuinn Bheaga is LottieKnits Aglow DK. It’s absolutely beautiful and a dream to knit with! The merino gives in a lovely bounce, the yak (similar to alpaca) adds to the beautiful drape and the silk gives a beautiful sheen to the shawl. The combination of yak and merino makes it really cosy too! Lottie is very kindly giving 10% off all her DK yarns for the release! Just use the code Ripple10 on her website.

Below you can see all my testers projects in various different yarns! There’s a beautiful range of yarns and colours, one used LottieKnits Chameleon DK Gradient and it’s stunning!
