La Bien Aimée
Painting Rainbows Bundle - Stephen West
La Bien Aimée is delighted to offer this bundle in La Bien Aimée Helix and Mohair Silk for the Painting Rainbows shawl by Stephen West, featured in his book Painting Shawls.
This Original bundle contains two brand new La Bien Aimée colors: Peach Sweater on Helix is the main color, a subtle peachy pink with yellow undertones, and the first shade of Mohair Silk is called Lichen, a delicate sage green.
This bundle is La Bien Aimée's interpretation of the beautiful pallette featured in Stephen's book. Please note: while Stephen chose a fingering weight yarn for the main color, we have selected Helix, a lace weight yarn held double. The Mohair in this bundle will also be held double, like in Stephen's pattern.
Enjoy the smooth relaxing rows and repetitive rhythm of this semi-circular shawl. Two skeins of Helix frame eight shades of Silk Mohair that decorate the rainbow stripes. The main color is one strand of fingering weight while the contrast colors are lace weight held double for extra fluffy rainbow rays.
The Painting Rainbows Yarn Bundle includes the following skeins of the main color (which is held double):
- 2 x Helix - Peach Sweater (100g)
- 1 x Helix - Peach Sweater (25g)
And 1 skein of each of the following:
- Mohair Silk - Anemone (25g), Bois de Rose (25g), Goldenrod (25g), Hegelia (25g), Kitsune (25g), Lichen (25g), Loam (25g), Sandstone (25g)
Please note: the photos are indicative of the colors, not the number of skeins you will receive in your bundle.
This yarn bundle does not contain the pattern / Ce lot de laine ne contient pas le patron. It is available on Ravelry here and in the book Painting Shawls.
