Rabatt is that really organized, neat, but very colourful flowerbed you pass by that really makes you feel like the world has a good and proper order to things! It is a two-coloured shawl knit from tip to tip, with a straight upper edge and a bent lower edge. It is framed by a nice i-cord edging that makes the orderly feeling complete! The leaves are shaped with short-rows, and the entire shawl is knit in garter stitch. This makes it a very simple project that anyone can execute, as long as you know how to make increases, decreases and how to slip stitches.
The first tip of the shawl starts with only a few stitches, but increases on every 4 rows at the lower edge. The leaves come in two different heights, but because they’re always the same (you just increase sts at the lower edge), it’s easy to get into the rythm. You make the shawl as deep and as wide as you like by adding more repeats or continuing the increases. Eventually, you decrease the same way that the first tip increased.
This shawl is perfect for your handspun yarn in various colours, combined with a plain white or solid colour yarn. Or perhaps a bunch of mini skeins as the contrast colour?
Rabatt is written for a locally produced Swedish yarn from the local mini-mill Östergötlands ullspinneri. The yarns Visjö and Karamell are spun with wool from finewool sheep, a native heritage breed that has a very soft and crimpy wool resulting in a fabric that can be worn next to the skin. The colourway Karamell is a gorgeous gradient yarn that goes through the colours about three times per skein. It can be ordered from https://www.ullspinneriet.se/.

This little guy turned out soooo cute! The pattern wasn't difficult, but I was asked to do my best to make it look like their colt (color patches), which made it a bit difficult on my end, but they loved it!
This is my third gorgeous pattern from Linnea! The pattern is not only beautiful but easy to follow. As for Linnea herself, she is brilliant, so helpful. The first Plotulopi Pattern I bought from her I had to contact her, as I had no idea how to use the yarn etc. and she was lovely an explained everything! Excellent!
Though I had never before knitted according to a pattern (in English, on top of that) and never with 3 colours, the instructions were fairly easy to follow and I faced no difficulties. The snowflake pattern is very beautiful! The style is quite tight and long, but this is mentioned in the instruction and you can see it in the photo. So I made mine in size L (I usually wear size S) and shortened it. In my opinion 50 g is more than enough also for colour B (I had 1,5 balls left over), but this will go into a bobble hat where I can use the same design once again :-)
