This shawl is one of our shop favorites! Ambah O'Brien's Columbina Shawl can be worn anywhere and we love it for the endless color choices and exciting pattern motif. When we received a fresh batch of Less Traveled Yarns we knew we wanted to pair some up for ready made kits for you to enjoy! Here they are!

Each Kit Includes:

  • Paper copy of Ambah O'Brien's Columbina Shawl pattern
  • One skein of Less Traveled Yarns in 757 Sock (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon) - 463 yards
  • One skein of Malabrigo Sock Yarn (100% superwash merino) - 440 yards

Note: These kits are enough to make the small version of the Columbina Shawl. If you want to make the larger one consider adding an extra skein to your cart for your main color.

Shawl Details:

Harlequin’s cheques dance across this alluring wrap knit in Circus Tonic Handmades yarn. Named after the romantic hero’s conniving mistress, Columbina begins and ends with a steady rhythm of easy garter rows, interrupted by a dramatic and entertaining crescendo of two-colour mosaic, and is embellished with a picot flourish. The perfect project for vibrant, high-contrast colours, the bias shawl comes in two sizes and is shaped only with simple increases and decreases, resulting in a spectacular and sophisticated accessory.

Gauge: 24 sts and 46 rows = 4""/10 cm in garter stitch, blocked.  Gauge is not crucial for this project, but variations will affect yardage and final measurements.  Note: some knitters may need to go
up a needle size to maintain gauge in the mosaic sections.
