In collaboration with Swedish designer Anna Martina, of Playsweetmusic, we are very proud to present Clairière, a beautiful two-colour shawl knit using Skein Merino Cashmere Fingering.  Anna drew inspiration for this design from the Swedish forest, wanting to 'illustrate the sun glittering through the holes in the leaf covered ceiling'. 



Clairière is a triangular shaped shawl knit from the top down, which can be easily sized to suit personal preferences. It's great if you want to use up every last bit of your yarn!  Sample is shown in colourways Gingko, for the main body, and Fallow, for the edging.  With a two-colour shawl like this, it's fun to play around with colour combinations. Below are some of my favorites:
















Clairière is now available over on Ravelry, as well as on the Playsweetmusic blog.  You can see more of Anna's designs here.



Thanks to Anna, I will be giving away a pattern as well as two skeins of Skein Merino Cashmere Fingering to make the Clairière shawl (winner's choice of colour) to one lucky reader/podcast viewer!  All you have to do is tell us in the comments below which two Skein colours you would choose to make this beautiful shawl!  Entries close on December 8th; the winner will be chosen using a random number generator and will be announced on the blog.  Entry is limited to one post per person, please.


Have a wonderful weekend!
