Vacation Butterfly Shawl Yarn Kit by Marin Melchior
Vacation Butterfly Shawl is a modified version of Marin Melchior's original Papillon Shawl, designed to take with you on vacation!
We've put together this stunning yarn kit with Urth Yarns Monokrom and Uneek Fingering. Use Monokrom for the main body of the shawl, the solid-ish tones will add depth and variation to plain stockinette stitch. While Uneek will magically change colors as you knit, creating a colorful edge to your shawl.
The original Papillon Shawl involved a lot of counting the whole way through, making it a bit tough to bring to knit night. Marin has designed this new Vacation Butterfly Shawl, so you can focus at the start, and once the pattern and rhythm is established, it's a great project to take with you while travelling. When you reach the border, it's time to get to work and really pay attention to your short rows and color changes.
The blue sample shown is made in Uneek #3004 & Monokrom #3057, the green sample is Uneek #3006 & Monokrom #3065.
This Kit Includes
1x Uneek Fingering Weight Yarn
2x Monokrom Fingering Weight Yarn
Vacation Butterfly Shawl Knitting Pattern
Larger than the original Papillon Shawl, the Vacation Butterfly has a generous 42" (107cm) height at the center with a 90" (229cm) wide wingspan, but may vary depending on your final gauge.
To care for your shawl you can machine wash it on gentle cycle in cool water and lay it flat to dry.
Once you have completed your purchase, the digital pattern will be emailed to you in PDF format, and your yarn will be sent by first class post. If you include your Ravelry Username in the notes box when you check out, we can have it added to your pattern library.
More About the Yarns
Uneek Fingering is hand dyed extrafine merino, and when knit, stripes up into an organic mélange of colors. Every hank you purchase helps to plant a tree in conjunction with Trees for the Future.
Monokrom Fingering is the perfect option if you want your single color projects to have a visual texture and depth. The vibrancy created by monochromatic color transitions will grab any eye passing by.
