MATERIALS:

Expression Fiber Arts CashSilk Sock Yarn 

Shown in colors: Sunlit Rose Hues – Green (C1), Green, Pink, & Tan (C2), Pink & Tan (C3) (375 m/410 yd per skein; 1,125 m/1,230 yds per kit)

The sample shawl used approximately 330 to 355 yards (302 to 325 m) of each color, and it used a total of 1,040 yds (951 meters).

If those colors aren't available, any from this category will work. 

NEEDLES: 

US size 5 (3.75 mm) straight or 32” circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge.

SKILL LEVEL:

Intermediate: This pattern is for those who feel comfortable with knitting and have made a variety of projects, using various skills and techniques. Skills/concepts include: knitting a picot cast on and bind off, knitting and purling through the back loop, working with more than one yarn at a time, and slipping and passing stitches.

Notes from the Designer:

The colors of the Sunlit Rose Hues kit remind me of the many beautiful rose bushes that my mother used to grow when I was a child. In particular, the subtle pink, peach, and apricot hues of the CashSilk Sock kit evoke the colors of the Shukrani rose. Shukrani means thankfulness, appreciation, and gratitude in Swahili, and as the inspiration behind the Shukrani shawl, it’s a reminder to give thanks for the small moments of beauty that surround us every day.

The Shukrani shawl is knitted flat in one piece and begins with a delicate picot cast on and ends with a matching picot bind off. The shawl features an overall, lace design that recalls the soft curve of a rose petal, while the picots mimic the tips of leaves and the thorns of a rose. The body of the shawl is constructed by repeating a 28-row sequence that is designed to be knitted with three complementary colors that will blend well with each other to create a gorgeous, symmetrical gradient from beginning to end. Instructions for the picot cast on and bind off are included in the pattern, as well as both written and charted instructions.

  • Throughout the shawl, you’ll work with two colors of yarn at the same time. You can carry your nonworking yarn up the side until you’re instructed to break the yarn.
  • At the end of the pattern, you’ll find a chart for the Setup rows, the 28-row Repeating Shawl Pattern sequence, and the Finishing rows.
  • Finally, be sure to check your gauge against mine to ensure that you have enough yarn to complete the pattern.

Shukrani and Cash Silk Sock
5 Stars

The Shukrani pattern is proving to be delightful ! First, the instructions are on point. From there, the movement of the color transitions are fascinating. I'm at the point in my project where the third color is about to dominate and it is so exciting! The yarn, Cash Silk Sock, is incredibly soft while being very strong. The twist of the yarn is great and yarn splits are not an issue. The colors are beautiful and the variety of color makes every stitch look like a little gem.

I have not made this shawl as of yet but I do want to comment on other patterns from Expression Fiber Arts. I find that the patterns are very easy to follow and very detailed. I have used so many patterns from other sources that are written so poorly, one cannot even finished the product. Thank you for producing very beautiful and easily to follow patterns.
