The design of SKEINO’s Corinthian Shawl was inspired by details from Renaissance Buildings in Italy.
Example of a Corinthian capital on top of a column.
The easy design is based on stripes of Garter Stitch ending in a lace row. But the eye-catching detail is the edge on both sides of the shawl. These “Corinthian Leaves” are worked at the edge of each stripe through heavy increases and bind-offs.
The 3 luscious yarns are DK weight and the fibers are a blend of Fine Merino – Silk – Kid Mohair – Nylon – Lurex.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to knit this exciting piece for yourself or someone else. This interesting shape is very easy to knit. The hand-painted yarn will not pool or zigzag because of the constant increases and bind-offs.
The 16 colorways will give you a wonderful variety to choose from so that you can select the color that fits your style.
This is a great beginner’s piece and you will have fun with it when you see the “Corinthian Leaves” unfolding at the edges.
