Punarinta Shawl Kit - Original


Punarinta means Red Robin in Finnish, and the wonderful designer, and our dear friend, Roos Vlaskamp was inspired to name this shawl as the colours invoked memories of a sweet Red Robin at the bottom of her garden.

The shawl drapes beautifully over the shoulders, is crescent shaped and knit in two different weight yarns. Bands of solid colour are interspersed with colour work and lace. The border of the shawl is worked in one colour brioche stitch with minimal increases and decreases to maintain a notched shape. Because of the brioche border and the lighter Suri (or Kidsilk Mohair) middle section, the shawl drapes almost like a cape.

Main Colour: 2 skeins of heavy fingering weight yarn, or approx 320m per 100g (x 2)

Contrast Colour: 1 skein of light lace weight fluffy yarn such as Suri (our Cloudy) or Kidsilk Mohair.

Yarn in Kit: 2 skeins Masham/Suri Alpaca, 320m/100g, 1 skein either Kidsilk Mohair or Suri (please note, Suri is preorder only due to Covid-19 restrictions. Preorders ship in 2-3 weeks)
