If you love creating quick shawls with a great impact, check out this free Ravelry pattern by one of my favourite designers, Nicola Susen! Nicola used one 'ball' (or should I say 'roll'?) of Wollmeise Rolls for this gorgeous shawl, but the pattern is highly adaptable and can be used with a range of 4ply yarns.

Wollmeise Rolls were a special one-off dye run by German yarn maker Claudia Höll-Wellmann. Instead of dyeing the yarn the usual way, she had it knitted into a sock blank first and then dyed it. The end result is a gorgeous transition of colours that is quite unusual.
To use, you either unravel the sock blank and wind it into a ball, or you simply knit from the blank, unravelling as you go along - whichever you prefer!
Get in quick:
Wollmeise Rolls was a special edition yarn. We only have a limited number of Wollmeise Rolls left - so if you are interested, this is your last chance to get your hands on one now so you won't miss out.
