Complementary colours

June 18 2013 – thisisknit

Don't you love when you find a pattern that ticks every box? One that's fun to do, pretty as a picture, with interesting use of colour, and an easy-as-pie stitch pattern? Meet Elowen! This delicious project is knitted in Hedgehog Fibres Sock - so much softness and such glorious intensity of colour! Elowen takes 300m of the main colour and much, much less of the contrast, so if you have two skeins of contrasting sock yarn, you can get two complementary shawls, where the main colour of the first is the contrast of the second, and vice versa! One for you and one for a friend, perhaps? The pretty stitch pattern in the border is simply achieved by slipping stitches, so you're never using more than one colour on a row. This is the least stressful colourwork you could imagine, and isn't the result lovely? A gentle, portable project which gives you a beautiful accessory in no time at all? Perfect!
