Match & Move
I just love the “We’re Different”-Grab Bags from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise: Depending on which kind you choose, you will get a combination of a multicolor and a matching semisolid, hand-picked by the dyemaster herself, who has an unmatched sense of color. What shall I say? I was really surprised when I saw that she teamed up a softly variegated brown-grey with a bold and warm red. I just had to give it a try and get my knitting needles moving!
So here’s “Match + Move”, a shawl designed to show off the perfect Wollmeise color combination and use up (almost!) an entire grab bag of yarn. My shawl weighs 286 Grams. The unusual construction results in kinked stripes that look really interesting when you wear it.
The knitting is plain garter stitch and very relaxing, and the shawl is so big and comfy, it is just a dream to wear. Definitely my favorite shawl so far – and I am determined to order another grab bag, be surprised and knit myself one more.
Size of the shawl in the pictures: 200 x 50 cm (80 x 20 inches)
286 g of yarn (140 g of color A and 146 g of color B)
Available here in my Ravelry store (€ 3.90).
