Carol Feller, the designer behind the pattern line Stolen Stitches, has just released her 3rd book, Short Row Knits (now available at bookstores and yarn shops everywhere!). I am particularly excited about, Tempisque, a colorwork shawl from the book knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light.
From the website Stolen Stitches:
This workshop-in-a-book demystifies short row knitting, an easy method for creating perfectly shaped shoulders, bust darts, hems, and other three-dimensional elements. Carol Feller walks you through every step with easy tutorials and 20 beautiful projects.
The Tempisque shawl uses short rows to create wedges in different colours that create a unique geometric shawl. Worked from the top down, increases at each end grow the shawl as you work.
This project uses 4 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, in 3 colors. Ultra Alpaca Light is the same great fiber blend as the worsted weight but in a versatile sport to light DK weight, perfect for cozy garments or accessories.
Win a kit to make Tempisque from Short Row Knits!
Potter Craft books has shared a copy of the book to giveaway and we’re adding the yarn – Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light, in shades 4201 (1 skein), 4279 (1 skein), and 42104 (2 skeins) – to knit Tempisque from the book.
