Simple Laceweight Shawl
Fyberspates Gleem is a blend of 55% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 45% Silk. It comes in gorgeous hand dyed semi-solid shades.
The shawl is a large elongated semi circle with a deep eyelet border.
The laceweight yarn creates a lightweight fabric and the shawl shape is versatile to wear.
Yarn - Fyberspates Gleem x 1 hank we used Blue Lagoon shade 708.
Techniques - cast on; work flat - back and forth; knit; purl; increase - knit, yarn over, knit into same stitch; yarn overs; knit 2 together (k2tog); cast off loosely.
If you like this elongated style shawl, check out our Alpaca Scarf and Simple Shawl for a similar look but in a thicker yarn.
The combination of Bluefaced Leicester wool gives the yarn structure while the silk provides a beautiful sheen and make the colours glow.
The blend of both fibres makes the yarn strong enough to be blocked well and show off lace patterns to their best advantage.
Please note this yarn is hand dyed and each skein is unique (even within the same dyelot). If you are using more than one skein in your project you are advised to alternate skeins to ensure any differences are blended.
