If diamonds are a girl's best friend, then the Double Diamond Shawl is a girl's BFF!
Zen Yarn Garden's Serenity Silk + is a two-ply blend of superwash merino wool, cashmere, and silk that offers stunning stitch definition in a soft, luxurious fabric. The wool provides a nice basic structure, the cashmere offers a little decadent softness, and the silk adds to the drape and sheen of this fingering-weight yarn that's beautifully hand-dyed. We have 13 gorgeous colors in stock, but if that's not enough we also have 90 special order colors available!
Bonus: All Zen Yarn Garden yarns are on sale at 20% off until February 2nd! The sale includes both in-stock and special order colors!
You will need one 40″ size US 6 / 4.0 mm and one size US 5 / 3.75 mm circular needle. I like the addi Turbos, and I also suggest the addi Rockets if you like a sharper point. Adjust the needle size to obtain gauge if necessary, and no, the length isn't important on the smaller needle. You'll also need a US C / 3.0 mm crochet hook for the crocheted bind-off and edging. Don't worry! If you have even the most basic crochet skills, you should be fine. I highly recommend the addi Swing Crochet Hook for a nice comfortable grip or the more traditional and affordable addi Color Coded Crochet Hook; both have the same nickel-plated surface as addi Turbo knitting needles. And a couple of stitch markers would definitely be handy!
Wrap yourself in the luxury of diamonds and silk!
