My Ambershore Shawl is off my needles! This was my first fingering weight shawl and I'm so glad I picked this pattern, by local designer Inese Sang, to dive into finer-weight knitting. Alternating between stockinette, colourwork and bobbles kept it interesting, and each colour gets a turn in each repeat, so to see the variation play out while knitting is very fun.
I knit it in Everlea Yarn's Naturally Dyed Organic Merino Fingering in the colourways Water, Burnt Madder and Twilight. They are quite a stunning combo, if I do say so myself.
I have these very yarns available in stock and I just added a listing for the bundle of three to make it easier for you to snag them (https://www.everleayarn.ca/shop/trio). There is an option to add the called-for knitting needles, too, if it’s Ambershore you’ll be knitting them into.
What other three-colour shawls would you knit in these colours?
