Samples for the Wild Knitting 1 workshop in Klerksdorp 25 March 2015

Wild Knitting started with "Winterbeach" , a shawl inspired by the colour of the Wilderness Beach in winter. The yarn was custom spun and dyed for this project. The basic shape of the shawl is that of the 'wingspan', different lace patterns, garter stitch and short rows are randomly used.

Sample 2 is the 'banana' shawl. It might look complicated, but the shape is easily achieved with increases. Lace patterns are random - no need to follow specific patterns. Material is a hand-dyed Alpaca lace yarn knitted with 4 mm circular needle.
