This pattern is Linook, knit in YOTH Little Brother in colors Hazelnut, Shitake, and Portabella. Since the pattern actually calls for four different colors, I used Hazelnut as both the first color (Color A) and the last color (Color D).
The pattern is designed for a DK-weight or worsted-weight yarn, and Little Brother is more like fingering weight, so I switched to US 6s. The FO turned out much smaller than the model in the pattern – not surprisingly, given the difference in yarn weight, and I was aiming for a smaller shawl that I could wrap around my neck on cool spring and summer days, instead of a shawl that draped all the way down my back and would only work for wrapping up in on the coldest of days.
I continue to adore YOTH yarn – I love the beautiful palette of natural colors, and the yarn has so much softness and drape, it’s a pleasure to have it around my neck.Pin It
