Artyarns Taj Kit - NEW!
The Artyarns Taj Kit contains everything you need to make a statement shawl or tunic. It includes 2 skeins of Artyarns Ensemble Light, a luxurious Silk/Cashmere blend in hand-dyed coordinating colors, and 3 detailed patterns by designer Iris Schreier – a Rectangle Shawl, a Triangle Shawl (about 20" x 76") and the Taj Tunic with cap sleeves or longer sleeves (42″ bust/23″ long, use 2 kits for plus sizes).
Plus you'll have a few fun stitches/abbreviations to keep you interested, they are all explained in the pattern instructions: KFB (knit into front and back); PM (place marker); RM (remove marker); SL3WYIB (slip 3); P3TOG (purl 3); SSSK (knit 3 together); PFB (purl into front and back); 1 Cord Tab (photo instructions in pattern). Although this mosaic stitch looks super complicated, you can work it by just doing one row at a time -- we promise! Just don't read ahead :-) And, we're always available for in store, phone, or help via email!
