FINGERING SHAWL BALLS Patterns
Ruffle and Twist by Heidi Schultz Inspired by a type of medieval veil, the pleated (or goffered) edge of this crescent shaped neck scarf adds interest, whimsy and texture to a functional and fashionable accessory.   The scarf is knit lengthwise, using short-rows and increases for shaping.   A unique twisted edging at the neck takes advantage of the natural tendency of knit fabric to roll to provide a finished and feminine hem.  Knit in a super-soft yarn, this will quickly become one of your favorite scarves this fall! Freia Fine Handpaint Ombré Merino Fingering Shawl Ball 100g/430 yards each. Shown in Vamp Size US4 / 3.5mm 36 inch long (or longer) circular needles, stitch markers,  tapestry needle Finished size approximately 65” wingspan and 6” deep 6 sts/ inch unblocked. This shawl will grow about 20% after blocking. Skills: Knit, Purl $5.50
Requiring One Ball
Antheraea by Heidi Schultz Antheraea is a genus of moths which includes silk moths. The wingspan of the shawl echoes the curvature of the moths’ wings while the Ombré yarn provides the markings. The way shapes and colors combine in nature are a big source of inspiration for me, the world of insects is particularly rich in ideas. Freia Fine Handpaint Ombré Merino Fingering Shawl Ball 100g/430 yards each. Shown in Woodsman (one ball). Also shown in Vintage (two balls) and in Krypton (one ball)  Size US4 / 3.5mm 36 inch long (or longer) circular needles, 12 stitch markers,  tapestry needle Finished size o one ball - approximately 36” wingspan and 21” deep, o two balls - approximately 48” wingspan and 28” deep. 6 sts/ inch unblocked. This shawl will grow about 20% after blocking. Skills: Knit, Purl, YO $5.50
Palmira Triangular Scarf by Tina Whitmore For this shawl I was inspired by the concept of interlocking palm leaves. I chose two contrasting Ombré shades  in dark colors of greys and black with a pop of yellow. The second sample is made with our neon colors, using a semi solid in glowing purple (Thistle) to contrast the range of fluorescent to pastel orange colors found in the Ombré (Neon).This is an attention holding project employing the simplicity of garter stitch for a nice combination of both a satisfying and relaxing knit. Requires 2 balls of Freia Fine Handpaint Ombré  100% US Merino Fingering Shawl Ball 100g/approx.430 yards each. Shown here with one ball in Oro Azteca (MC) and one ball in Cloud (CC) US 5/3.75mm needles 32” (or longer) circular needles. (or size required to obtain gauge), a tapestry needle for finishing.  One size Skills: Knit, Purl, make 1, simple short rows $5.50
Axiom Shawl by Tina Whitmore Concentric Garter Stitch Triangles with a Neon Accent Create a Modern Triangular Shawl Freia Fine Handpaints Ombré Merino Fingering Shawl Ball 100g / 430 yards each. Shown in one ball each of Krypton and Helium. Needles and notions:  Size US5 36-inch long (or longer) circulars or size needed to obtain gauge.

Requiring Two Balls
Devil's Slide by Heidi Schultz This generously sized, bias knit wrap makes clever use of two complementary ombre colorways. Simple eyelet bands add interest to the corner sections while a dramatic feather and fan slide section shows off a contrasting color. Choosing color combinations is as addictive as the knitting! Originally designed as a light wrap for a cousin’s honeymoon, the wrap will work well all year round. The super soft and lofty merino yarn and generous size makes a wonderful wrap for cool spring and summer evenings, while still working well as a scarf for colder fall and winter months. US4 / 3.5mm needles Finished size approximately approx. 22 inches wide and 70 inches long after blocking Skills: Knit, $5.50
Sequoia by Leah Chapman Sequoia is a simple yet elegant open-front cardigan knit up in a rich autumn color palette. The design combines the hand-painted ombré Canyon colorway with coordinating Red Oxide semi-solid. All sizes use two balls of the ombré yarn to ensure that you will get the full spectrum of the gradient throughout the sweater without having extra yarn go to waste. The asymmetrical stripes throughout the body, and solid sleeves and collar add a fun contrasting element. Three-quarter length sleeves and lightweight 100% Merino yarn make this a great layering piece that can transition through all the seasons. US 8/5mm needles Sized S - 3XL Skills: Knit, $7.50
