Bring your Skein Sisters Fabulous Sock to life with drifting colours and fun textures in this beautiful shawl by Jacqui Verbeek. Take the guesswork out and use one of our gorgeous kits.
Let's make the new Colour Drift shawl by Jacqui Verbeek together!
During the development of our first range of Skein Sisters Fabulous Sock, we asked Jacqui if she'd be able to design a shawl pattern for us. We're so excited that the Colour Drift shawl is the result. Use one of our sets and cast on, or choose your own colours of Fabulous Sock.
This large, asymmetrical shawl is a simple, fun and relaxing knit. It’s the perfect companion for TV knitting, travel knitting or for when you just need a palate cleanse after a difficult project! Choose three skeins of beautiful yarn and let them do all the work as they drift in and out of each knitted section, creating blocks of colour, swirling stripes and interesting textures. While it’s a simple and easy knit; the colour and pattern changes keep it interesting and you’ll be finished before you know it!
This is a great shawl for all skill levels. If you’re a beginner, there's info included in the pattern on what to do if you make a mistake or if things aren’t looking “right”. If you’re an experienced knitter, you will find this a breeze. Change it up by adding in extra colours or adapting the increase sections with your own stitch patterns - there are so many possibilities to have fun with this shawl within the framework of the pattern. Some of the techniques used are: iCord tab cast on; iCord bind off; YO eyelets; and a very basic brioche-style stitch that avoids purling.
This pattern is great for beginners who feel confident they can problem solve when things go wrong.
The pattern requires three skeins of yarn and combos with lots of contrast work well.
Included in your kit:
- Skein Sisters Fabulous Sock - three colours with 1 skein of each
- Colour Drift pattern - printed copy plus the digital download
You will also need (not included):
- 4mm circular knitting needles (80-100cm recommended)
