We are always on the lookout for intriguing yarn and pattern combinations - and are completely captivated by the gorgeous undulating ripples found across the Wind of Change shawl.
We combined La Bien Aimée Merino Singles with Verb's silk-mohair Frond yarn and the result is stunning. Due to the squishy nature of the stitch pattern, the softness and halo of the yarn combination, and the gentle curve of the shawl that drapes ever so easily around one's neck, this shawl is a must-have to keep warm.
Wind of Change is an asymmetrical triangle, worked top down in one piece. The shawl begins with a garter section, where you can focus simply on the color and yarn. Now that you are warmed up, you will move to the lace section. Though the pattern looks as if it might be knit brioche - nope - this is knit in English ribbing, a technique much easier than brioche, but gives the same wonderful soft, squishy, full fabric.
There are two colorways to choose from:
Dusk: La Bien Aimée Day by the Bay (Verb's custom color) + Frond Mist
Dawn: La Bien Aimée Nadia (named for the designer of Wind of Change) + Frond Mother of Pearl
Important Note: In order to get this pattern to work with 2 (instead of 3) skeins of LBA Merino Singles, we made the following modification to the pattern:
Section 3 - Edging

Then, complete the next 4 rows as written on the pattern. 252 stitches.
You will now work with picot edging. Bind off 3 stitches. *Slip etc etc. Complete as written.
If you would prefer to knit the pattern as written, please purchase an additional skein of LBA Merino Singles.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
