Ossa Shawl Using Shibui Silk Cloud/Pebble
An airy, fluid fabric and sheer, seemingly random striping make Ossa a stand-out shawl. Knit on the bias, Ossa’s triangular shape is started at the long edge, then decreases down to a point. Plus, this pattern is free with the purchase of Shibui’s Silk Cloud and Pebble!
The staggered stripes and floaty fabric are achieved by alternating sections of lace-weight Silk Cloud knit solo with sections of lace-weight Pebble and Silk Cloud held together. Silk Cloud, a heavenly silk/mohair blend, brings a pretty halo to Pebble’s lustrous blend of silk, fine merino, and cashmere. A powerful partnership of fibers for one splendid shawl!
