the knitted shawl; my dearest karin

To inspire and to be inspired

posted in: Knitting, shawl, Storytelling, Sweden | 1

The inspiration to make the shawl, My Dearest Karin, came from Karin Larsson and her amazing work with textiles and home decoration.

When I asked for some test knitters I didn’t know what to expect and I was just excited to get to see their work. 

Paula Jakobsson signed up and choose to look Karin Larsson’s work up to find the colors she wanted to use. 

The result blew me away, I would never in a million year had imagine this!
