Klambratún Stole


The inspiration for the stitch patterns used in this design was the birch trees found in Klambratún Park in Reykjavik, Iceland.

This shawl was originally designed in 2017 using a special colourway of Caper Sock dyed to celebrate Shall We Knit’s 10th anniversary. As happens sometimes, this pattern’s release was delayed until now and I’ve just found out that String Theory is retiring from the yarn business. I won’t be able to buy my beloved Caper Sock anymore but for those of you with this luscious yarn in your stash, here’s a pattern to show off its depth of colour and beautiful stitch definition it provides.

If you want an exact composition match (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon), have a look at Squishy by Anzula, Djinni Sock by Dragonfly Fibers, Swanky Sock by Magpie Fibers or Capretta by Knit Picks. For those just interested in a similar hand, any fingering weight Merino/Cashmere/Nylon or Merino/Cashmere/Silk blend will work.
