Craft Lovers ♥ Eivissa Shawl knitted with Katia Ombré by Alessandro Estrella

Get your circular needles ready! Because we’re travelling to the White Island with the Eivissa Shawl designed by Alessandro Estrella using Katia Ombré. There’s no doubt that Ibiza is one of Alessandro’s favourite places, and a location where he finds the inspiration to make some of his interesting knitting projects. This Italian knitter enjoys knitting when he travels, and above all, he’s a shawl lover. His name and the story about his love for this accessory is probably already familiar to you. In fact, if you follow our blog, you may already have made his Stefania Shawl using Katia Tahiti Jeans.

Eivissa Shawl On this occasion, Alessandro has played with the 6 colours in a pack of Katia Ombré (col. 6) to obtain the resulting warm tonal Eivissa Shawl: Orangey-Red, Tomato Red, Ruby Red, Garnet, Burgundy and Wine Red. As we’ve already told you in this postKatia Ombré is available in packs of 6 balls of Extra fine Merino in different colours. Therefore, with only one pack, you can make a shawl like the one designed by Alessandro Estrella. Without further ado, we’re sharing the knitting pattern here, showing how to make this marvellous Eivissa shawl, that will transport you to the luminous Mediterranean island.

    In my collection I found a lonely brown ball of Kari’s Peru. It’s a blended fiber 40/40/20 listed as wool/acrylic/alpaca
    On its intact band @ 3.5 oz , 109 USA.

    As a crochet hooker I would like to use this in a beanie. Have you archived
    a pattern utilizing that “stash” amount?
    Your current catalog appears not to
    Include this product online US, so
    I can’t purchase another.

    I would be interested in either a pattern or an additional ball or two of similar wt
    & color ( 09) if possible.

    Thank you so much

    Do get the shawl to look like the one in these pictures, do you start with the light color or the dark color first, the knitting goes from the middle out or from bottom tip to the top?

    • Katia Yarns (author)

      Hello Margarita,

      Start with the light color and the knitting goes from the middle out.
      We hope this helps you get on with your project without further problems.
      Thanks for your comment! Greetings!

    How many rows of each colour do you do?

    • Katia Yarns (author)

      Hi Caroll, each ball is used in its entirety so the following colour change is generated. We recommend that you make the colour changes at one of the sides of your work to conceal the join. We hope this helps you get on with your project without further problems. Thanks a lot for knitting with our yarns. Greetings!

    When do you change each color?
