You can choose any colourway in our shop. Due to the colourwork aspect of the design I would highly suggest that you use semi solid or tonal colour to achieve the beautiful design as intended.
You can browse all of our solid colour ways here. If you do not see the colourway you want listed here, or if you need any help choosing, please get in touch and we can work it out together.
Alternatively, If you can't find a colour way that makes your heart sing, please do get in touch and we can create you a truly one off custom colour way.

Yara is a very wearable, crescent shaped shawl. A prominent design feature are the vertical and horizontal mosaic bands that adorn the shawl. To achieve this look the upper body of the shawl is worked from side to side. For the lower shawl body, stitches are picked up at the edge of the upper shawl body and worked downwards.
The pattern contains a photo tutorial for the bobble bind off, and how to knit the bobble backwards.
