You can use one skein of Niagara MCN, or two skeins of Escarpment DK :)
We’re gearing up for The Blue Brick’s first KAL! Rae, by Jane Richmond, a gorgeous, mindless, massive squishy shawl, starting July 1st! Click here for more details.
Don’t forget – until June 22nd you can get 15% off your Blue Brick purchase by using the discount code RAEKAL at checkout! I backed up the end date by a week to give everyone’s orders time to ship for the July 1st cast on :) Hope to see lots of you casting on with me!
To help open up more choices, I’m opening up the KAL to include projects where you use 2 skeins of DK weight – used end-to-beginning to make a palindrome (for example, starting the first skein at the coloured end, and the second skein at the white end). That’s 600 yards of DK weight, and would make an epic-sized Rae! Here are a few examples of what I mean:
I’ve been knitting up my swatch project for a few days now, and I thought I’d put together a few versions with the Rae shawl shape mapped onto them – to help you see how the colours would sit. Bear in mind that these are swatches, which means that the colours have been condensed *a lot* (into <100 yards) and that your actual piece will have the colours spread out over a much longer space. Here are some ideas where each end of the scarf will have a different colour:
Of course, there is always the original, Peggy’s Cove as well! Happy shopping, can’t wait to cast on with everyone!
This looks like so much fun! Is it necessary to use two skeins or can it be done with 1?
