A Break in Tide Shawl KAL Kit


Break in Tide Kits will be available to purchase from Thursday 24 June

Lazy days and long evenings call for knitting you can take at your own pace where the stitches lean on the soothing, rather than the challenging side. A Break in Tide is a Tif Neilan design that includes rhythms and repeats that may surprise you, but won’t ever vex. This is knitting for sandy days on the beach or sunday afternoon-ing in the park.

Our colour and yarn choices for the Break in Tide KAL Kits have been inspired our favourite summertime knitting – kite tails over the beach at Holkham, ice lollies in the dappled shade of the trees in London Fields, jewellish salads on the felafel stall in Chatsworth Road. We’ve gone fizzy, fruity and really woolly.

Each kit contains enough full hanks of DK weight yarn to make the shawl and its tassels. This varies from 300 to 500g of yarn depending on the meterage. Kits with more meterage will probably yield some left overs, so we’ve got a freebie extra pattern from Tif that we’ll be passing onto you later in the Knit Along.

Please note that yarn quantities in the Wool Kitchen Break in Tide Kit have been calculated based on doing the tassels in the contrasting  colour instead of the main colour.

A Break in Tide is the latest iKnit7-with-Friends Knit-a-long which will continue through the month of July. It’s our favourite season for this kind of knitting. And perfect timing for winding up with a wonderful wrap for the cooler evenings ahead. To take part all you need to do is subscribe to the iKnit7 newsletter and get yourself a kit.

The shawl grows from the bottom-up in a triangular shape, with garter stitch followed by sections of Fisherman’s rib and slip stitch variations. The design starts gently with just a handful of stitches and increases at each end. Finally it’s bound off along the top edge.

The fabric of the shawl has the look and feel of brioche but is in fact fisherman’s rib. There is no brioche knitting involved at all. We’ve got a great link to working the fisherman’s rib stitch. It’s not tricky but good to know exactly where your needle tip needs to go.
