To support a new design from Casapinka, we've got kits for you!
This kit includes:
4 skeins of Merino Fine (4 oz each, 475 yards, 100% superwash Merino single ply fingering weight yarn, twisted hank) in the colors pictured, PLUS a free Yarn Underground cotton project bag!
Not included: pattern or needles.
From the designer:
You may use 4 skeins of fingering weight yarn, approx. 375 yards each for the shawl and cowl and about 1200 yards for the scarf/cowl. Some contrast is desirable but you don’t need screaming contrast for all of them.
Shape: Rectangular like The Sharon Show to keep things simple during a pandemic. It will already be familiar to you. The Scarf begins life the same width as the shawl but then decreases so you have pretty flared ends. It uses about 1200 yards of yarn.
Measurements: Shawl: 17” X 72” after wet blocking Scarf: 12” X 68” (except for scarf ends which are 17” wide) after wet blocking (note - it’s simple to adjust your length as you proceed.) Testing is still going on so average lengths may change but it’s also easy to adjust with more or fewer repeats.
Most of this pattern is pretty simple. If you are a beginner and have a couple of projects behind you, I urge you to give it a try! It is easier than The Sharon Show but will not be boring! There is also the simple technique of marling that you will be introduced to if you’ve never done it. Don’t panic…it’ll take you 30 seconds to learn it.
If you don’t know who Sharon From Security is, she’s a snarky cat who is also a Spy and a Security Guard here at Caspainka. She drinks and smokes and has a Catitude but she’s not as bad as Jean From I.T. and Jeans’ chihuahua Shannon who pees on Sharon’s tires. We are considering bringing in a Royal Canadian Mounted Policecat to help Sharon get her shit together but that’s a story for another day.
