This stunning Sea Urchin shawl appeared in issue 82 of Knit Today magazine. It’s by Kyoko Nakayoshi – who works under the name of Cotton and Cloud. She regularly designs for magazines, so you’ve probably come across her work before, and releases her own collections twice a year. Kyoko also has a beautiful website – check out her look book – and her blog has some amazing insights into the design process – ever wanted to know how to place pattern over short rows?
The Sea Urchin shawl looks decidedly classy and easy to wear and would make an excellent addition to any Spring wardrobe. It’s made with 3 skeins of Skein Queen Elixir – alpaca, silk and merino – and to support Kyoko’s design, I’ll be adding several new colourways to the shop at 5pm GMT today.
Knit Today issue 82 is the February issue and is still available in the shops or by subscription.
The colourways available will be Plumberry, Pink Oyster, Rose Petals, Rambling Rose, Latte and Snow White’s Lips.
