Pippu - English Version

$3.00

Product Description

Short Description:  Drape your shoulders with gentle ripples and lace reminiscent of a Zen garden, its walkways trimmed with mosses. Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, this bias-knit shawl is perfect for the softest yarns in your favorite soothing colors. The gorgeous yarn used in the sample was naturally dyed using avocado pips, so I named it Pippu, the Japanese word for pip. Start with easy stripes, alternating a fngering weight with a single strand of lace weight yarn. A simple, straight-forward lace section is then worked with the lace weight doubled, giving the asymmetrical triangle a floaty finish.

Gauge: 20 sts and 38 rows = 4"/10 cm in Garter Stripes, with CC held single, blocked.  Gauge is not crucial for this project, but variations will affect yardage and final measurements.

Finished Measurements: 

  • Wingspan: 88”/223.5 cm
  • Depth: 24”/61 cm
