Inara Wrap

Here is another great shawl from Ambah. I debated between this one and the one that I am knitting

Pattern: Inara Wrap (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
Let Inara be the blank slate on which you paint your own personality. Select two sets of gradient yarns for a rich ombre, or mix and and match from your stash for a roadmap of your favourite tones. Diagonal columns of alternating lace and garter stitch make a strong statement without being intimidating. Included is a schematic to colour in to play with your colour scheme. Worked end to end, this long wrap can easily be shortened with fewer repeats of the pattern sequence, instructions are given for 3 lengths, with both written and charted instructions included for the lace section.

Length: Short 64”/163cm, (Medium 80”/203cm, Long 96” / 243cm) Width at centre: 18.1” / 46cm

Fingering Weight / 4-ply
S: Two Gradient sets of 4 x 125 yd / 110m, or 2 x 500 yd / 457 m single colour
M: Two Gradient sets of 5 x 125 yd / 110m or 2 x 625 yd / 572 m single colour
L: Two Gradient sets of 6 x 125 yd/110m or 2 x 750 yd / 686m single colour

Two gradient kits from Frabjous Fibers will make the medium shawl. There is another shipment of kits on the way to us (they made it to Canada Customs so we might see them on Tuesday) including

A neutral for one half of the shawl will mix well with any colour.

The possibilities are endless. I've already put together so many interesting combinations.

Right now I am leaning towards mixing a purple kit with a green kit.

Here is a link to the Ravelry page of people who have used the Frabjous Fibers kits...
