Melanie Berg has named her new, fascinating design after the German island Norderney in the North Sea. Because in the asymmetrical triangular shawl, the slipped stitches form bold patterns of colour, like a beach full of bright pebbles tumbled smooth by the surf. It was designed with the four delightfully earthy Melange shades Sand Stone, Honey Pie, Terra and Lava of our Cheeky Merino Joy, but it makes the perfect pattern for exploring your own favourite colour combinations!
You knit Norderney from the upper right tip towards the left edge alternating the two patterned sections with different contrast colours with small solid-coloured sections in garter stitch. The small-patterned sections, as well as the multicoloured sections with their three-dimensional look, are achieved with simple slipped stitches. The anchor stitches in the multicoloured sections prevent holes from forming at the end of the rows.
The finished shawl is approx. 260 cm (102.5 in) wide and 55 cm (21.75 in) from top to bottom after blocking.
You will need 5 skeins of Cheeky Merino Joy: 2 skeins in the main colour (188 g) and 1 skein each in the contrast colours 1, 2 and 3 (56, 56, 32 g). The indicated yarn quantities apply according to the gauge.
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
