Fude is the word for the brush used in Japanese Sumi ink drawings, the inspiration behind this collection. When working on the design concepts, I came across the Miss Babs Ansel colorway and knew I had to incorporate this beautiful yarn into my black and white collection. It was perfect! This shawl is my foray into speckles and multi colored yarns, which is not my usual tendency! The variegated yarn is matched with a semi-solid so that the effect is not too overwhelming. Texture and colorplay - this is a fun shawl to work in any yarn!
The pattern is written so that you can use every bit of that special yarn you’ve been saving for the right project. If you’d like to eek out every yard, then work Sections L & M until you run out of Color A, and then work the seed stitch border until you run out of Color B. (Shown in fingering weight gray version.) The shawl is worked sideways. Asymmetrical and worked on the bias, it has a lovely shape for wearing around the neck as a scarf.
Pattern includes both worsted (black and white) and fingering (gray and white) weight versions.
