New design: Dewdrop Shawl Jacket

Dusty pink yarn, one of spring’s trend colours, tempted me. A summerly shawl jacket knitted sideways in a dewdrop pattern where both sides are equally stunning, one is elegant, the other more relaxed. Drape it with a shawl pin or use it upside down giving it a longer back and a smaller collar. Designed for Thomas Kvist Yarns.

Knitted in Colina, a mixture of cotton and linen giving the jacket substance. The yarn is soft and comfortable to wear in addition it is of a slubby nature giving it an exciting uneven finish.

It requires 9 hanks of 100g Colina, by Thomas Kvist Yarns, shade 12 (70% cotton, 30% linen, 160m/175 yds). The tension is 17sts and 24 rows in patt = 10cm/4’’ square using 3mm/US 2-3. See selection of shades and retailers on www.thomaskvist.se. Below is a close-up of the swatch, unfortunately photographed upside down.

I look forward to seeing the professional photos and will show you those when they are done.

  1. What an interesting jacket. It has given me a couple of ideas … I have many skeins of a very nice DK weight linen I bought several years ago that I think would work well knit up in something like that.
