Ivy Brambles Tornado Thick and Thin

It isn't often that you just come across a yarn that really is different to all the rest. Ivy Brambles Tornado is just one of those. Aaprt from the spectacular way it takes to Ivy's nature inspired colorways, it is also fabulous to knit with. 100% soft merino wool just glides on large needles. Not wishing to just knit up a stockinette shrug or scarf (way too boring) we decided to go with a classic lace pattern and supersize it!

Yarn: Two skeins Ivy Brambles Tornado Yarn, shown in Celosia colorway.
Needles: US #13 (9 mm) 40-48 inch circular knitting needles.
Other: Stitch markers, 4 buttons, darning needle
Gauge: Approx 8 sts per 4 inches (10 cm) before blocking
Finished dimensions: Approximately 60 x 22 inches (150 x 56 cm)

We finished this one in Wildflowers colorway.
