Uptown Shawl Kit
The Uptown Shawl is our wonderful shawl kit using La Bien Aimee and Gepard Kid Seta yarns!
Designed by Susie Haumann
This beautiful triangular shawl is knitted from the bottom with increases on both sides. Alternating with gorgeous hand-dyed Merino Sport from La Bien Aimeé and the Gepard Kid Seta laceweight silk and mohair.
This makes the most sumptuous and squishy fabric with a slip stitch technique using only one strand at a time.
One skein of La Bien Aimeé Merino Sport and 2 balls of the Gepard Kid Seta is enough to make this beautiful shawl. You can easily customise the size by adding extra yarn to make a larger shawl.
* Keep in mind that you'll need approximately 3-4 grams of the mohair/silk to create the I-cord bind off.
We used a 3.5mm needle for our sample.
The kit includes all the yarn you'll need in our handpicked colours to make the shawl. Everything comes with a Loop cotton bag!
