Under the Same Sky Knitalong

There’s nothing nicer than coming together to knit, the tradition of people knitting together is centuries old and in today’s modern world it even happens online.  At Tangled Yarn we love organising a knitalong and our next one starts on June 1st. To celebrate the arrival of our latest hand-dyed yarn from Switzerland, Siidegarte we will be knitting Under the Same Sky a beautiful shawl that was designed by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne for last year’s Swiss Wulle Festival.


Under the Same Sky


The knitalong is taking place in the Tangled Yarn Ravelry group. It’s a real friendly group with plenty of support and encouragement should you need it. Cast on day is June 1st and the knitalong will run until July 13th.

There will be a prize draw; the prize is a £50 gift voucher to spend at Tangled Yarn. To be eligible to win you have to post a cast on picture on or after June 1st and a finished shawl by July 13th. The winner will be selected at random from those shawls that have met the criteria and will be announced in the Tangled Yarn group.


The Pattern - Under the Same Sky

Under the Same Sky is a large crescent shaped shawl that is knit in one piece.  From a garter tab cast on great things happen, with alternating garter stitch bands in one colour and lace panels in a contrasting colour. The shawl is finished off with a wave edge.

The knitting pattern for Under the Same Sky is a printed pattern and available to order from our store. The instructions are both written and charted so you can decide which you prefer, I for one love charts. I would say Under the Same Sky is suitable for an intermediate knitter.


The Yarn - Siide-Fideel

You’ll need two skeins of Siide-Fideel, the designer has knit her shawl in Silberdistle (grey) and Himelsröösli (blue), but don’t let that limit you there are lots of other colour combinations and if you need a little inspiration then check out Ravelry. You’ll also need an 80cm 3.5mm circular needle and two stitch markers.

Siide-Fideel is a 50/50 blend of silk and merino in a fingering weight yarn; it comes in 120g skein with an ample yardage of 492 yds / 450m. It knits up beautiful and is ideal for this pattern as it has the most wonderful drape and sheen to the finished fabric. You’ll simply love your knitting your shawl and wearing it!
