Ambah O'Brien designed the beautiful Pippu shawl using Woollenflower yarns:
"Drape your shoulders with gentle ripples and lace reminiscent of a Zen garden, its walkways trimmed with mosses. Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, this bias-knit shawl is perfect for the softest yarns in your favorite soothing colors. The gorgeous yarn used in the sample was naturally dyed using avocado pips, so I named it Pippu, the Japanese word for pip. Start with easy stripes, alternating a fingering weight with a single strand of lace weight yarn. A simple, straight-forward lace section is then worked with the lace weight doubled, giving the asymmetrical triangle a floaty finish."
This kit includes:
2 skeins of Woollenflower Whorl (72% kid mohair/ 28% silk, 210m/ 100gm skein), dyed with buckthorn and indigo to a grassy green
1 skein of Woollenflower Tendril (70% baby alpaca/ 20% silk/ 10% cashmere, 400m/ 100mg skein), dyed with buckthorn and pomegranate to a cool gold
It does not include a copy of the Pippu pattern- you can purchase the pattern directly from the designer, Ambah O'Brien, on Ravelry.
