Ocean Moon by Ambah O'Brien / Koigu Kit

Availability: In stock (3)

Originally designed as a Mystery knit along (MKAL) incorporating five clues plus an optional bonus clue, the Ocean Moon Shawl is a choose your own adventure project with many choices to make along the way. Start by choosing your yarn either three colours or two colours plus five mini skeins or gradient yarn. Option A provides instructions for the intarsia moons and Option B omits these allowing plenty of room for the optional Twinkle, Twinkle finishing touch where you can add embroidered constellations. You’ll be able to choose between the Moon lace and the Ocean Waves lace, both a perfect flourish to your Ocean Moon Shawl, and try to stop at just one!

Suitable for: advanced beginner to intermediate with accompanying intarsia and lace video tutorials.

Lace includes both written and charted instructions.

Colour Notes
This will work beautifully with a fade with C1 being the darkest colour and C3 the lightest.
There needs to be a strong contrast between C1 and C3.
I used a 5 colour fade for C2 for my Option A sample and a single colour for C2 for my Option B sample.
