From Kieran Foley - a lightweight lace shawl inspired by the folded layers of color in Rainbow Jasper stone: “During this rock formation patterns arise in sediment or volcanic ash; the original materials are often fractured or distorted, and filled in with other colorful minerals” (from Wikipedia). In the pattern the layers & rifts in the stone are suggested by frequent color changes and clusters of increases and decreases.
Techniques include lace stitches, stacked decreases and splicing.
Knit on 4mm/US6 needles with 1340yds/1225m of naturally dyed lace weight lambswool yarn from Renaissance Dyeing. The colours are mainly from the Elizabethan range, dyed with madder, woad, weld, oak and cochineal.
Dimensions: approximately 72.5in/184cm long by 25in/63cm wide
Gauge: approximately 20 sts and 15 rows = 4ins/10cm in stocking stitch
The kit consists of
Renaissance Dyeing naturally dyed lace-weight lambs wool
