Raspberry Shawl


Lizzie Bennet Shawl

Lizzie Bennet’s Shawlette by Annie Riley is a gorgeous pattern that makes a wonderful shawl, especially if it is knit out of two skeins of Intrepid Tulips Bamboo Frost in Razz.  Bamboo Frost is another beautiful yarn I can’t say enough good about.

From the Intrepid Tulips shop description (Sarah says it so much better than I could):

” Bamboo Frost is an ultra springy, very soft, sumptuous yarn spun from a 60% Merino wool/40% Bamboo blend. This yarn provides high stitch definition, making it a wonderful choice for cables and simple lacework. It feels so silky next to the skin; it’s a favorite choice for warm hats and scarves. A very subtle shimmering effect results from the dye striking the wool and bamboo differently and results in a quiet light-play across your finished knitwear.

This yarn sits right on the line between a DK and Worsted. It knits into a lovely fabric using US #6-8 needles (4-5mm) and between 18-22 sts = 4″ (10cm). 100 grams, 220 yards. Care: Hand wash cool (or occasionally machine wash on delicate cycle). Dry flat.”
