Nordllys - New Pattern & Kits

I'm excited to reveal my first design of 2017. Nordlys is the latest addition to the Lace Wear Volume Two collection and can be purchased separately or as part of the collection. If you've already purchased the collection, you will automatically receive this pattern (check your inbox for e-mail notification).

Inspired by the colours in the Aurora Borealis, or Nordlys as it’s called in Norway, this design, converts from an infinity scarf to a shrug. Beads add a touch of twinkle. Nordlys is worked flat as a rectangle and the short ends are seamed.
Pattern is 20% off until 22 January 2017. No coupon code is needed.

The beads which add shimmer to the design, are added using the crochet hook method. For a video tutorial click here. You may also find some of my other tutorials helpful, see them here
I've put together a few kits for Nordlys. You can pre-order kits now for the original colour I used and I've also put together a few other colours which I think will work really well with this design. If you've signed up to the YarnAddict Newsletter, do check today's newsletter for a discount on both the pattern and kit.

I knitted Nordlys in Schoppel Zauberball but some of the kits I've put together use Zauberball 100. These yarns feel the same to knit with and look identical. Zauberball has slightly more meterage than the Zauberball 100 but you will still have plenty of yarn.
Nordlys kits will be shipped by the end of January at the latest, but hopefully sooner and these are the colourways I've put together for you.
                                   Nordlys 2308 (the original)                 Nordlys 1505
                           Nordlys 1699                      Nordlys 2270                                  

See all the Nordlys kits here.

I've called Nordlys an infinity shrug. It's worked flat then the short edges are joined to form a loop. You can wear it in a long loop around your neck or twist it around your neck twice. If you allow it to drop down across your back, it's a delightful shrug. I'm actually wearing mine like that now and it's keeping me toasty warm while I work at my desk. And this morning when I popped out I wore it as a scarf, wrapped twice around my neck.

Nordlys is currently available as a pdf pattern either separately or part of the Lace Wear Volume Two collection (please remember that if you live in the EU, you will be charged your local VAT rate on pdf patterns).
