Summer Project #2

Garter Stripes is a simple little triangle shawlette knit with Kirameki in garter stitch, letting the self striping colors really show. The yarn is a lace weight 60% rayon, 25% nylon, 10% wool, 5% cashmere with a range of beautiful colors. I love easy to memorize projects like this that you can pack up and take to the park.

Knit on a size US 2, using one ball of Kirameki. The finished shawlette size is 58" wide and 23" long after blocking. The pattern is available free with yarn purchase.

Kirameki by Noro has been very popular. With 495 yards/50 grams, a one skein project is easy to achieve.

The colors:

Each ball has such a unique change of colors.
