The Summer Breeze Shawl Kit has all the gorgeous yarn you'll need to make this lovely light shawl. Deborah Jarchow, the patterns' author, believes that the fringe on a shawl is an opportunity to make a simple design pop. A 4-ply yarn (Almerino DK) was used for this project then one ply, two ply, three ply, slowly transition from this first color to the second color until all 4 plies are the second color. The best part is the yarn does all the color change work. So the weaver doesn't have to do extra work to get a beautiful color fade. Additionally the warp yarn has a bit of metallic in it which adds an extra sparkle to this piece. The ends of the scarf are a true work of art. They have three rows of decorative stitching, each over four rows of weft. Deborah added an additional distinctive touch by wrapping the fringes, a technique she'd seen used on many rugs. The effect is stunning! True to its name, the Summer Breeze Shawl, the woven fabric is so thin it can be worn as a full-width shawl or folded into a scarf.
