Saraya is a cabled shawl designed by Saysha Greene using Corrie Worsted and featured in the book, Worsted, A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée. Both traditional and romantic, this large semi-circular shawl is a beautiful exploration of delicate cable patterns.
Saysha chose the color Coquelicot for her design, with the deep bright red representing romantic love. Aimee opted for Stone, a dark and moody silver grey. The warmth and coziness of Corrie Worsted makes you want to wrap this luxurious accessory around your shoulders for a warm hug.
Here is what Saysha wrote as the inspiration for this pattern:
“Saraya is a flirty semicircular shawl, inspired by romance and the excitement of romantic love. The half-pi construction creates distinct sections allowing you to explore different textures. Beginning with nupps on a stockinette background, and then moving to a wider section of fluttery shadow cables. The highlight of the shawl is a deep panel of juicy cables with a dash of garter lace for a final flourish. While some attention is needed to work the action rows, there are plenty of relief rows to please any intermediate knitter.”
Thank you, Saysha, for agreeing to participate in this book!
