30% Unbleached French linen
Light Fingering (uk 4 ply) weight with 50g – 300m
Spring field in Japanese, Haruno is a long triangle shawl designed for our AESTIVA base by Eri Shimizu @eritml .
We adore the idea she had to render in stitches various flowers you can find in spring fields and associated them to a wind-inspired stitch; it's just a perfect match with the suggestions we wanted to evoke with the yarn name: aestiva is the Latin word for the summer fields, ready to be harvested or populated by herds as pastures .
It is worked sideways, starting from one end, increasing stitches on the right edge to the final width. Lovely tip is to add a tassel to the cast-on edge if you wish!
The original sample is knitted in the undyed creamy colorway, MARZAPANE, but you can see a couple of testknitted pieces in DEGAS, a very light powdery pink, and GOTHAM a faded and subtly variegated purplish beige.
Please note that the pattern is not sold with the yarn purchased
