Painting Honeycombs Shawl

Painting Honeycombs Shawl
Finished Size: 74" wingspan x 33" center depth
knit in Freia Ombre Fingering Shawl Ball & BT Peerie: 2 skeins each

Here at The Websters we all love a good shawl project - and this one is a stunner. The Painting Honeycombs Shawl by Stephen West is a triangular shawl worked up using a fingering weight gradient yarn paired with a complementary solid. This piece starts with a long i-cord cast on, and decreases along one edge until you reach the smallest tip - this makes for a fairly addicting knit, as it just gets smaller as you go! We knit our sample up using one of our favorite ombré yarns from Freia Fine Handpaints, along with Brooklyn Tweed Peerie for that perfect solid contrast.

Cecelia Cowl

Cecelia Cowl
Finished Size: 27" circumference x 8" depth
knit in 1 skein of Freia Ombre Super Bulky

Love gradient yarn, but perhaps you're looking for a quicker knit? The Cecelia Cowl by Rachel Atkinson is a perfect alternative. This chunky cowl is worked up in Freia Ombré Super Bulky yarn, and showcases a fun sequence knitting style stitch pattern. This cowl uses just one ball, and the large recommended needle size makes this a super speedy project - perfect for when you need something quick and cozy.
