Trio Shawl KAL Round-Up and winners!

I was looking for a new shawl project when Strikkelisa’s Trio Shawl popped up on my Instagram feed and I immediately knew is was the perfect one for me. Large, super wearable and comfy, like a hug thought the day! I loved the simple yet interesting construction, but best of it all – the Trio Shawl can be customised and adjusted in all sorts of ways and it can be knit in any yarn really, so it opens up for experimenting and breaking the traditional ‘rules’ and you all know that I am always up for breaking the rules.

Randomly drawn from those who joined in and finished by February 20th the winners are *drumroll*                                                                                                                                 Hollo06 won 3 patterns of choice from Strikkelisa with an accompanying yarn pack from Knit with attitude for one of those patterns.                                                                   Yarntogarment won 3 patterns of choice from Strikkelisa and a refund of her purchase from Knit with attitude.

Could the two of you have a little browse through Strikkelisa’s English patterns and drop me an email to maya(at)knitwithattitude(dot)com letting me know which ones you chose and I’ll let you know how to proceed choosing colours for the yarn pack and details for the refund. Congratulations!

 

 

Trio Shawl KAL

So many of you noticed my Instagram post on Strikkelisa’s new design the Trio Shawl this weekend, and several of you commented on wanting to cast on with me. As usual (most of the time) your wish is our command so here goes, the first KWA KAL this year is the #trioshawlKAL

Trio Shawl by Strikkelisa

An ideal beginner’s shawl project and a stunning quick fix for the more experienced knitter, the Trio Shawl offers an interesting construction and an opportunity to play with colours! I always wear my shawls with the point at front and I particularly like the way this construction really show off the design when worn like this. You can use any yarn weight for this design and properly let loose your inner colour combo geek – you need three colours divided on 4 equal parts of yarn – 2 parts MC, 1 part CC1 and 1 part CC2. For my version I’ve decided to go for Hillesvåg Vilje as my MM, Garnsurr Pan in Kjeta as my CC2 and Black Elephant Minis in Cornfields as my CC1.

The pattern is available in Strikkelisa’s Ravelry store, in Norwegian and English.

We are keeping image posting to our Ravelry #trioshawlKAL group and Instagram for this KAL so post your progress pictures and FO’s using the hashtags #trioshawlKAL and #knitwithattitude so that we can find them. Winners will be drawn at random from posted FOs Monday February 25th. (We’ll use the ravelry project pages and instagram posts as entries).

So enough with the blah blah and let me know what I can win, you say. Do we have some proper goodies waiting for you! Strikkelisa has generously gifted 3 free patterns of choice to our winner and here at Knit with attitude we will follow this up with an accompanying yarn pack in colours of your choice! Yes that’s right – it is a whole new project + two patterns in one go! Also, if you choose to get the yarn for your Trio Shawl from Knit with attitude you will be entered into a draw where you can win the value of your purchase refunded and to top it up even more you’ll also get 3 patterns free of choice from Strikkelisa.

Right so that’s the deeds so far, I hope you feel inspired and ready to cast on with me!
(BTW for more inspiration check out the insta hashtag #triosjal to have a look at all the gorgeous versions made while the pattern was tested.)
