A Luxury Cashmere Yak Wrap

A few months ago, Ruth from the Little Knitting Company, sent me a ball of her luxurious Cashmere Yak blend. I love trying new yarns and this exotic, textured yarn immediately got my interest. I did some swatching and then started working on two designs for The Little Knitting Company

Here's the first design:
It's a sideways knitted shawl in garter stitch with a simple lace border.  With 5mm needles it's a quick knit. Increase until you've used up half the yarn then decrease till the shawl is finished. The pattern repeat for the border is quick to memorise and there's lots of squishy, lovely garter stitch.

The Little Knitting Company are running a competition. Name the shawl for a chance to win a kit for this design (it looks like you need a Facebook account to enter the competition). See the details and enter here.

If you'd love to knit this for yourself you can get the kit here. You can see the colourways available here. I highly recommend giving this yarn a try and look out for another accessory design coming soon.
