Koigu yarns just beg to be combined. The more disparate your shades, the better they seem to blend. I have listed the shades used in the pictures as so
many people want to replicate the exact combination of colours. However, I dare you to be adventurous!
Just pick any shades that grab your attention, do NOT consider how well they go together, trust the magic of the Linen Stitch! I promise the result will surpass your expectations...
Of course you can also make this shawl with more shades, or less, or using up left-over yarns. As long as you start with approx. 600 m (150 - 200 gr) of 4-ply, you will have enough yarn to finish it.
This pattern is also available as part of a kit.
