As we wrap up this segment featuring designer Angela Tong, I present a few more of her shawls for your future consideration:
I was fortunate enough to test knit Ginto last year and I greatly enjoyed creating this elegant triangle shawl. Ginto is knit in approximately 770 yards of fingering weight yarn. For a luxurious knit, consider using two skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere; currently at 10% off, treat yourself to some hand dyed merino and cashmere!
The Monsoon Shawl is my current favorite of Angela’s shawl designs. The project sits in my Ravelry queue awaiting casting on. This half-pi shawl almost was a choice for our Shawl Adventure but I encourage you to explore this design on your own. THe Monsoon Shawl was originally published in Interweave Knits, Spring 2014 and is knit in approximately 590 yards of worsted weight yarn (which means a relatively quick knit!). One hank of BMFA Woobu (or BMFA Targhee Worsted) would make a great Monsoon Shawl.
Lastly, if you enjoyed Kouyou, consider the first design that Angela published: LaReine. This shawl is a top down triangle similar to Kouyou and is knit in one hank of fingering weight yarn (and you know that Natural Stitches has a great selection of hand dyed fingering weight yarn. . . consider Wonderland Yarns Cheshire Cat!).
All patterns are available at Natural Stitches through Ravelry in-store downloads. I hope you enjoyed this segment of the Shawl Adventure KAL. . . we’ve explored two easy shawls so far but buckle your seatbelts fellow adventurers because starting next month, we go epic!
