Emma’s Yarns

Tropical Dilemma

Regular price $111.50 $125.00


From the designer, Laura Dobratz

I live in the subtropics where we enjoy year round sunshine and hot sticky summers. I often find myself in a dilemma, do I dress for the weather outside or the weather inside? Outside the sun is blazing and inside the air is frigid, almost freezing! Enter Tropical Dilemma, the perfect take everywhere

This gorgeous shawl is knit from the top down, beginning with a garter tab cast on. As you add increases to the spine and edges a triangular shape is formed. The simple repeat of knits and purl rows are memorizable and meditative, making this the perfect lazy day, knit night or Netflix project! Grab a kit of colorful yarn or use up bits from your beautiful stash, this shawl is all about letting the yarn do the heavy lifting so you can relax and enjoy!

The pattern is not included in the kit. You can purchase it on Ravelry.
