Krisanteema has been inspired by the beauty and intricacy of layered chrysanthemum flower petals, intertwined and overlapping to create mesmerising, soft blossoms. Contrasting textures emphasise the lacy, scalloped petal panels against the linear ribbing, while contrast colour adds a dimensional feel to the design.
Krisanteema is specifically designed to highlight the properties of yarns with a high silk content and sheen, so is perfect for our gorgeous Skein Sisters Romance yarn. The shawl features a simple ribbing in the main body section worked in MC, interrupted by more delicate scalloped petal panels alternating between CC and MC.The simple knit stitch texture of the scalloped petals allows a smooth surface to showcase the full, unobscured gradience of a CC.
Krisanteema is a symmetrical triangular shawl knit top down with a Garter Tab Cast-On and increases along the edges and its central spine to obtain its final shape. In the scalloped petal sections the alternating colours are carried along the right edge of RS rows and the shawl is finished with the Stretchy Ribbing Bind-Off to ensure a clean and controlled stretch of the ribbing.
Each set contains all the yarn you need to finish the pattern for the small size - 3 skeins of MC and 1 skein of CC. If you want to make the large size, simply add another skein of CC to your purchase. Please note, the pattern must be purchased separately from Inese Sang on Ravelry.
Approximate finished dimensions (small size): wingspan 185cm; depth 85cm; side edge 130cm.
Yarn: Skein Sisters Romance 360m/100g, 4 skeins (3 of main MC and 1 of contrast CC). We've put together a selection of gorgeous combos, or create your own romantic palette from our in stock or dyed to order ranges.
