Kujaku Shawl - designed by Justyna Lorkowska
"Kujaku" means Peacock in Japanese and this shawl’s colours, green and blue let us are reminiscent of beautiful bold Peacock!
The shawl begins at the centre and is worked outwards to the border. There are two KFB increases in every row which create a long banana-like shape. The shawl body is worked in garter stitch and finished with contrasting colour slip-stitch stripes. The two-colour cabled border is worked sideways at the end and attached to the body by means of simple decreases and slipped stitches. The sample shawl is worked in three contrasting colours but would look equally beautiful when knit in just one.
