Natasja Horny's latest shawl design - the Artus Shawl, was designed in Lichen and Lace Rustic Heather Sport and we have kits available for pre-order now!
The Artus Shawl, designed by Natasja Hornby (aka Moonstruck Knits) is a triangular shawl that is worked top-down from the center out, starting with a classic Garter Tab Cast On. The shawl features narrow bands of 1×1 color created using the stranded technique. The eye-catching border of the shawl is worked using the mosaic technique, holding only one strand of yarn on every row.
Artus is a rich tapestry of texture and color. The mosaic border is easy to work, allowing for creative color combinations that consistently produce fantastic results.
Artus is not a delicate, sheer layering piece; instead, it’s a substantial wrap with a distinct presence. It stands out and adds character to any outfit while keeping you warm and cozy. It’s both eye-catching and functional, a true statement piece.
1 skein each of Sky, Pollen and Smoke, 2 skeins of Birch, and 3 skeins of Shrub. The kit includes the yarn only.
You can purchase the pattern directly from Natasja Hornby here.
