Andrea Mowry came out this super pretty new shawl pattern recently and I thought it would be totally gorgeous made with Cascade’s new marled-ombre yarn, Cascade 220 Superwash Wave! It’s knit on 5mm needles, so it won’t take forever to finish this project, and it will be nice and cozy for the cold winter. The pattern calls for 6 colours but 5 of the Cascade is plenty to make your wrap, and you won’t suffer for lack of colour (the pattern is easy to change up, the designer wrote this into the instructions). I took a picture of a couple of colour combos I thought would look pretty (see below). Plus, Cascade 220 Superwash Wave is very reasonably priced your the project won’t break the bank.
- Cascade 220 Superwash Wave: 5 skeins, each in a different colour (see suggestions below)
- 5mm/US8-32″ circular needles
- tapestry/darning needle
