Maribelle

Untitled When it comes to ombre yarns like Twisted Fiber Arts, asymmetrical is the way to go, and the pretty Maribelle is done just that way! This shape makes the most of the beautiful color shifts without looking like giant stripes. The cables and eyelet lace pattern in this shawl give the wearer the best of both worlds – cozy and airy at the same time. The gorgeous colors in the Twisted Fiber Arts yarn deserve to be put on display, and this lovely wrap is a showpiece.

Maribelle is worked asymmetrically from tip to side with the bottom edging knit simultaneously. The final edging is applied to bind-off the live stitches. This shawl can be made larger by working more repeats of the body section. Just make sure to start the applied edging on the appropriate row.

I know it's been too few and far between around here. The book work has has me hopping! I'm so excited about my first book, but it's odd to be so far removed from self-publishing my patterns like I'm so used to!
