Something pretty: Audhumbla

I happened upon this lovely FO the other day: Audhumbla by Ravelry user Mjin:

The pattern calls for aran weight yarn and size 8 needles. There's something about thicker-weight shawls that makes me go all aquiver...

Sporting some beautiful fair isle work, the pattern only had 4 completed projects, each of which show different color schemes. This black and white scheme by Mjin is such a standout, with the halo of the white alpaca blanketing the black, softening the pattern. Love.

The edging is beautiful, too! She knits beautifully! The border is knitted-on after the square is completed-- I'd love to know her secret for picking up those edge stitches.
Such a gorgeous and wearable piece! Thank you for sharing it with us, Mjin!



  1. Thanks for reminding me of this designer. I test knit her Volve shawl last year and really liked it. I have a baby blanket to make in the coming year; this would be really pretty for that.
