Corinthian Shawl Sample
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.
The hand-painted yarn will not pool or zigzag because of the constant increases and bind-offs.
