I had the chance to test newly released yarn Lang Dipinto and I was totally amazed by the colors.
Lang Dipinto (unboxing here) is 100 grams/3.53 ounces skein with 360 meters/394 yards and it is 50% virgin wool and 50% manufactured fibers – acrylic, very soft, thin (fingering (14 wpi) and perfect for cardigans, slouchy hats, barrettes, ponchos or shawls for spring or fall.
I decided to try the shawl and let the colors make the magic. I used so called Turkish stitch and I started form the bottom pointed tip. I used hook number 5 in the video but the scarf and the pattern is calculated for the hook number 7. I changed it because the final effect of the scarf is ultimate softness. This scarf is made out of one skein but you can easily make it bigger just buy more than one skein and continue with the pattern. The final size of the shawl made out of one skein is 63 x 63 x 90 cm. I added strings and tassel in the bottom tips.
This is rather fast project so it could be a fast present. So hurry up, let´s try.
Yarn: Lang Dipinto, one skein, color 0048
