Introducing La Scala

La Scala is inspired by traditional Orenburg shawls using their unique construction method.  Beads are added to this light as air, elegant shawl which is interesting to knit. 

Traditional Orenburg shawls are knitted using a very interesting technique which allows the edging to be knitted alongside the centre of the shawl.

La Scala is 30% off until midnight UK on 17 April 2018. Use coupon code: lascala30. Valid on pattern only.

La Scala is knitted in Navia Alpakka Lace which is a beautiful pure alpaca lace weight yarn from the Faroe Islands. I'm offering a small selection of La Scala kits ready to ship immediately and pre-orders on kits which includes the yarn, beads and pattern in a choice of colours. Due to the time it takes to ship the yarn from the Faroe Islands including clearing UK customs, I don't expect the kits to ship until sometime in May. 

 You can find the kits here in a choice of six colour combinations.

To support this pattern I'm releasing two new video tutorials: Invisible Provisional Cast On and Russian Grafting. You may also be interested in my Adding Beads tutorial.

I'll be teaching my Orenburg Lace Workshop at Handmade Studios in Hampshire on 26 May. This workshop will cover the construction method, invisible cast on and Russian grafting techniques used in this shawl pattern. Find details here.
