Yara or Lunae Shawl by Natasja Hornby



YARA:      

Inspired by the beautiful textiles Morocco is famous for, Yara is an absolute feast of texture and color. The tweedy background and the easy to work mosaic bands encourage some serious colorplay that will almost always lead to fabulous results.
Charts are given for a version with dark shapes on a light background and vice versa, so you can freely choose what kind of Yara you want. Go for dark and moody or light and summery, or everything in between. Use your imagination and creativity to make her truly yours, and I’m sure she’ll make you proud!

CONSTRUCTION
Yara is a very wearable, crescent shaped shawl. A prominent design feature are the vertical and horizontal mosaic bands that adorn the shawl. To achieve this look the upper body of the shawl is worked from side to side. For the lower shawl body, stitches are picked up at the edge of the upper shawl body and worked downwards.
The pattern contains a photo tutorial for the bobble bind off, and how to knit the bobble backwards.

SIZE One size.Approx 220 cm / 86.5” wingspan along the top edge and 53 cm / 21” deep.

YARN
Fingering weight yarn with some elasticity and bounce (wool or a wool blend).
MC: approx 570 m / 625 yards.
CC1: approx 550 m / 600 yards.
CC2 & CC3 (held double): approx 85 m / 95 yards each. This could be substituted with 45 m / 50 yards of a worsted or aran weight yarn held single.

Lunae  

Lunae’s most prominent design feature are the beautiful, but easy to work horizontal and vertical mosaic bands. But she has more; lots of amazing texture, a lovely, wearable shape, a fun construction, and, if you’re in to them, tassels!
And yes, it seems like a lot, but the well thought out details and the meticulously balanced proportions prevent it from being over-the top in any way. Although Lunae is a stunner and an eye catcher, she is also remarkably easy to wear and effortlessly elegant.
Wear yours with pride and a very wide smile!
