Last year I came across Caterpillargreen's beautiful yarn on Instagram and I managed to snag a skein of their beautiful striping shawl yarn in the Fingerpaint colourway. This yarn is designed to work with top  down triangular shawls (with a centre spine) so that each stripe ends up being roughly the same width. There are a combination of wide and thinner stripes. I decided to add a centre lace panel and a lacy edging to my shawl.

Amalfi is worked from the top down, just like a top down triangular shawl, but instead of single 'spine' stitch there's a panel of lace stitches. The shawl ends with a lacy edging.

Of course Amalfi would also look fabulous knitted up in variegated yarn and solid/semisolid yarn. Or why not do a bit of stash busting and create your own stripes with left over sock yarn. You'll need around 600m in total. Many indie dyers now do 150gr/600m skeins.

Amalfi is big, soft, cozy and it kept me warm this morning while I ran some errands. I've got my eye on some more of Caterpillargreen's gorgeous yarn.

Amalfi is £1 off until Sunday 15 February. No coupon code needed. Your discount will be applied automatically.
