A collaboration with the talented Mira with Cetus Knits.
Mira wanted bold so I abliged and came up with these stunning colours. Pattern link is in my gallery.
Notes from Mira........
A joyful exploration of colour and texture, Solar Flare is a vibrant and modern asymmetrical triangle shawl. With an easy-to-wear shape and visually interesting textures, Solar Flare can be dressed up or down to match a range of outfits. Use it to add a pop of colour, or knit it in neutrals for an elegant piece. With a classic shape, this is a pattern that can be completely customised to your personal taste, but whatever you do this shawl is going to have some personality. It’s bold. Combining squishy garter stitch and an interesting brioche texture, this shawl will attract attention. The textured stitches have a dimension and presence which means that changes in angle also alter the view of the colour interplay and the appearance of the shawl, bringing Solar Flare to life when it is worn. It seems to evolve as you move, which makes this a statement piece. A sideways knitting journey, Solar Flare combines simple shawl shaping with brioche to make a knit enjoyable enough to keep advanced knitters interested, but suitable and approachable enough for intermediate knitters looking to add brioche to their knitting repertoire. Like all my patterns, Solar Flare is easier to knit than it looks, while still remaining interesting enough to be an enjoyable project.
