This yarn set includes 2 skeins of Cottage Merino in the colourway "Barcelona ´22" for the Streets of Barcelona shawl by Joji Locatelli, Both yarn and pattern were especially designed for the Barcelona Knits Festival 2022.
The shawl is work sideways, from one tip, making increases towards the other end of the shawl. The base stitch is a textured rib, interrupted at regular intervals by rows of flowers.
This is what the designer says about it: "The inspiration for this shawl:
If you are ever lucky enough to visit the mysterious city of Barcelona, your eyes and soul will feast upon the most incredible sights, smells and music.
Art runs warm through Barcelona’s veins and it will be hard to look down, but if you do, you’ll find the Panot, the flower shaped design in Barcelona’s iconic tiles.
The Panot is one of Barcelona’s most popular symbols, and it’s the muse for this textured shawl, especially conceived to be launched at Barcelona Knits Festival of 2022.

CareCold hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry. We recommend pre-washing intense colors before combining with lighter shades to remove excess color pigments.
Dyes are applied merely by hand so there is a natural variation within hanks of the same dye lot. To maintain an even appearance in larger projects I would suggest to alternate skeins while knitting.
I take great care photographing my items, but please take into account that colours might vary slightly due to different monitors.
