designed by Pinpilan Wangsai, for Knitty's Spring+Summer 2016 issue. Pinpilan designed Pincha specifically for these high-contrast variegated yarns "Pincha" is Sanskrit for "peacock feather"). This garter stitch-based pattern utilizes short rows to take advantage of these color repeats, resulting in a striking shawl with zig-zags and an edge resembling feathers. We've used one skein of Araucania's Huasco
, in color Rio Grande.
It's shown with a Foofaraw shawl pin.
When we ordered Driftone
, a 100% cotton yarn, last summer, it proved to be popular due to its tonal colors and airy chainette construction. Our shop model of Purl SoHo's popular Notched Hem Tank Top
used just over 4 balls for the 37" size, in color 05/Green. Click here

in all the colors available (sadly, it seems the yarn has been discontinued by Plymouth).
