Tsang Shawl



by Claudia Eisenkolb

Tsang is part of one of the four traditional provinces of Tibet, making up the south-central region of the Tibetan cultural area, including the Brahmaputra River watershed.
That culture in mind, I‘ve chosen this lovely Tibetan Baby Yak Lace yarn in 3 colors for this shawl, Tibetan Sky, Saffron and Oatmeal, and created an easy-to-knit piece, worked on the bias. (Claudia Eisenkolb)

Sections of stockinette stitch and reverse stockinette alternate along the shawl. They are separated by lines of chain stitches, created by binding-off all stitches and picking them up again in the next step. These lines also alternate and are worked in a contrasting color to the main sections, appearing in turn on the right side and on the wrong side of the shawl. The chain stitch lines look like running stitch lines from the other side of the shawl.

This makes the shawl reversible – looking its best, whichever side is facing.

Each kit contains the yarn you will need to complete your project and an organic cotton project bag.

The pattern is sold separately. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry here.

You can also create your own color combination by choosing your skeins here.

NOTE: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis we have, no bleaching or decoloring so depending on the shade of the natural fiber, each color will vary from season to season, making it darker or lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fiber and so the shade of the sample you see photographed, not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
