by Åsa Tricosa
The MAYHEM shawl from Åsa Tricosa is a textured crescent-shaped shawl that combines simple combinations of knits and purls to create interesting textures. We knit ours using Crave Yarn Caravan – a light sport-weight/heavy-fingering yarn that has stunning stitch definition and beautiful drape. We selected the color Atmosphere - a barely there shade of pale blue to further highlight the textures in this shawl.
We think Caravan has the perfect yarn structure and fiber composition to highlight the character of the Mayhem shawl. The firm twist ensures your texture pops while the luxury fibers provide the drape to enhance the billowy border. Though the shawl pattern includes directions for two weights of yarn our kit uses the directions for the 4-ply shawl. Find out more about our experience knitting Mayhem on our BLOG.
