One of my favourite places in the world is Tongariro National Park.
It has every shade of blue, grey, purple and green you can imagine, and the landscape is cold, unpredictable and imposing. So when Heather from T&H Fiber Works put out a call for a designer to make something in these two yarns….
I knew exactly what they needed to be!
Into the Mountains is my newest, and now my favourite, design. It is a lightweight shawl that has sections of lace in chevrons and snowflakes, simple stripes for texture and the asymmetric shape eliminates any of those excruciatingly long rows that large shawls are known for.
In spite of the finished product being large and airy, it is a portable knitting project and I quite literally took everywhere to work on (including my bed and Anchor Bay).
Into the mountains adds a layer of luxury to your between-seasons wardrobe and if you would like to make one you can join me for a knit-a-long on Ravelry here! And the pattern is available on Ravelry too, just use this link: Into the Mountains.
