Knitspiration: Gingko Shoulderette Shawl!

emily2

This week one of our team members, Imogen, impressed us all with her beautiful Gingko Shoulderette Shawl by Maggie Magali.  It took Imogen about a week to finish the shawl. The pattern is a free download from Ravelry.

The Gingko Shoulderette Shawl uses a mixture of lace techniques and stocking stitch in a top down pattern. Interestingly the lace portion is worked on both knit and purl sides.

It took her just under two balls of the Morris and Sons 4 Ply Avalon Pima Cotton in colour Turquoise #4418.

Why did Imogen choose the Morris and Sons Avalon Pima Cotton?

While Pima Cotton was cultivated in Peru, and is primarily grown there, it has also been introduced to farming in Australia and the United States. Pima Cotton is known for its durability and absorbency.  This makes it excellent for knitting quality garments that don’t fray or wear over time. The Morris and Sons Avalon is made in 4, 8 and 10 ply and it comes in a huge range of colours. These are available for you to purchase online here.
