Design in focus: Asymmetric Shawl in Wollmeise Rolls

Posted on

If you love creating quick shawls with a great impact, check out this free Ravelry pattern by one of my favourite designers, Nicola Susen! Nicola used one 'ball' (or should I say 'roll'?) of Wollmeise Rolls for this gorgeous shawl, but the pattern is highly adaptable and can be used with a range of 4ply yarns.

Other Wollmeise yarns with the same yardage as Wollmeise Rolls are Wollmeise Pure and Wollmeise Twin.

Wollmeise Rolls were a special one-off dye run by German yarn maker Claudia Höll-Wellmann. Instead of dyeing the yarn the usual way, she had it knitted into a sock blank first and then dyed it. The end result is a gorgeous transition of colours that is quite unusual.

To use, you either unravel the sock blank and wind it into a ball, or you simply knit from the blank, unravelling as you go along - whichever you prefer!

Get in quick:

Wollmeise Rolls was a special edition yarn. We only have a limited number of Wollmeise Rolls left - so if you are interested, this is your last chance to get your hands on one now so you won't miss out.

If you have never heard of Ravelry before, we recommend to check it out. It is a treasure-trove of patterns (both free and paid patterns). Signing up to Ravelry is free.
