Product information "Lightning Printed Pattern"

This is the 4th pattern of Strickmich! Club 2017.

Colorful, eccentric, unusually creative and an absolute eyecatcher: That’s the colorway Miss Babs dyed for our fourth Strickmich! Club shipment of 2017. Is it a wonder I had to think of David Bowie when I saw it? For him, his music and his stage outfits were both part of his art, the show and the looks were just as important to him as the sounds. And he was a giant in both music and show: Songs like “Heroes”, “Absolute Beginners” or “Let’s Dance” will be forever in our ears. In the early 70s, he invented a stage persona called “Ziggy Stardust”, which he impersonated with bright red-orangey hair and a lightning bolt painted on his face – so I felt inspired by the orange speckles of the yarn to create a shawl with a lightning bolt motif.
It is mostly knit in relaxing garter stitch, only the net lace borders and the lightning bolt itself are purled from the wrong side. The size of the shawl can be adapted to the amount of yarn you are using. Happy knitting!
