11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / <3 Technicolor Dreamcoat <3 ***more pics!*** on: February 27, 2011 04:05:50 AM
Okay, recently i discovered i'm not only addicted to very colorful knitting - i'm also addicted to knitting shawls. This particular one was on my list for a long time.

The pattern is from vogue knitting ~ the yarn is noro kureyon in three different colorways.
Since the five main sections all are knitted individually and joined in the final step it makes a perfect project to carry along!

Here is a closeup of one of the cable and joinings sections:

... and another one of the bobbled edging:

*** thank you for the lovely comments, gals!!! ***

Happy knitting everyone!

Thank you for all the lovely comments!

Jane2 and striker927, yup, i love when knitting projects sometimes start to talk me... in a pleasant way  Wink and this one has even got anatomy to go along with it. the correspondence in colors of the different shapes really is done mostly by the noro colorways... all i did was picking the ones that talked to me the most  ...
i wore the shawl most of last week when being outside. it took this test, too  Smiley

suganspyyce, the pattern for the headband is from the book "sock yarn one-skein wonders". it took only a very small portion of a skein to knit it up. so yay for sock yarn!!

Molliemoo2883, i tried entrelac for the first time, too. the technique itself is brilliant and not as fidgety as i had feared ... and knitty has wonderful patterns. so well written and workable.

Happy knitting, everyone!

xx, Nan

Thank you all!!  Smiley

craftylittlemonkey, every square has one slightly larger-than-usual buttonhole. it creates the hourglass-shape of the individual squares and can be used to pull one end of the shawl through one of the holes ~ or to attach a clasp or shawlpin without actually harming the fabric!

My first entrelac project and certainly one of my most colorful knitted fos ever! Knitting it was fun  Smiley ... so much that i used up most of the remaining yarn for a headband and gauntlets.

The pattern is here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEdf10/PATTmotley.php

I knit with 3 skeins of noro silk garden sock yarn in 3 different colorways ... 2 of the 3 are very bright the third has mostly purples, pink, dark blue, gold and brown.
The only alteration to the pattern i made was starting out with 15 instead of 16 triangles... unintentionally, but once i realized it i didn't have the nerve to frog. it is still big enough, i think:

With Motley i also learned what split-splicing is all about. verrrry useful! i hate to waste yarn anyway, so this is a perfect technique for me   Grin

Hope you enjoy! xx Nan
