10 Aug 2016: Many of the colors we photographed for this blog post have already sold--we are working hard on dyeing and photographing more skeins in appropriate sizes for Taboo, and will make another blog post with new combinations early next week!
Taboo is a top down, crescent shaped shawl using two colours. It is lacy, beaded, dramatic and magical! Bev of Boo Knits will release the 4 mystery clues beginning October 1, and you'll be able to join her MKAL in her Ravelry group. This is always a popular knit-along and her group is tons of fun!
To complete this pattern you'll need one 800 yard skein of Wild Silk, and a contrasting 200 yard skein as well. The pattern is written so that you can use a variegated as either the main color or the contrast color.
Here's some combinations we especially like:
Painted Desert and Violaceous, Spiked Punch and Zombie Prom, Age of Innocence and Looking Glass
Pink Charade and Dusk, Cacao and Electric Lava, Venetian Glass and Lilacs
Naked and Atlantis, Mossy Log and Old Gold, Grape Basket and Purple Nebula
Ghoul's Night Out and Gomez, Coral and Pink Charade, Terrain and Spiked Punch
Dusty Backroads and Espresso, Saffron and Grasslands, Into the Void and Rocky Slope
Impatient and Prince, Opalescence and Venetian Glass, Carnelian and Verrassing
Ghoulish and Age of Innocence, Cameo and Saffron, Cacao and Terrain
Floyd and Cottage Tulip, Spicy Papaya and Favorite Boots, Cloak and Night Horse
Ecstasy and Vlad's, Prince and Clematis, Atlantis and Echo
Verrassing and Espresso, Distant Galaxy and Vlad's, Lilacs and Purple People Eater
Sea Grass and Topaz, Spicy Papaya and Liberty, Fiddlehead and Ultra Violet
Cloak and Moonstruck, Berlin and Clematis, Autumn Leaves and Saffron
Saffron and Vlad's, Moonstruck and Ghoulish, Obsidian and Terrain
There are many other possible combinations, of course, these were just a few we came up with while playing with the Wild Silk. We can't wait to see the beautiful shawls everyone knits! You can shop for Wild Silk here.
