Ves

$0.00

The Ves pattern was designed by Barbara Benson. Our sample was knit in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply in the colors Lagoon and Pool.

The shawl was designed for Miss Babs armchair travel trip to Sri Lanka! Featuring two beautiful colors of Yummy 2-Ply, this shawl creates an intricate homage to the elaborate Ves costumes worn by the traditional Kandyan dancers of Sri Lanka. By combining a slip stitch mosaic technique with lace you can create this piece while holding only one color of yarn at a time. Essentially, you are knitting stripes. Fancy stripes, but stripes nonetheless. 

You'll need two skeins of Yummy 2-Ply, or another fingering weight yarn (one of each color), to complete this project. For best results, choose two colors with high contrast.

Choose the original colorway below - or try another color combination! We have Duos in Woodbury and Caroline chosen for you.

You can purchase the pattern for Ves directly from the designer on Ravelry. This pattern is also available on LoveCrafts. All patterns are sold separately and not included with purchase of yarn.
