Shortly after debuting the Tuscan Sun Wrap, I got a reader request – a triangle shawl version! I knew the stitch pattern would present a challenge, but after lots of math and experimentation, I’d like to think I got it right.
The Wrap was made with Red Heart An Italian Story Ombra, a lovely color shifting yarn with some wool in it. So for the Tuscan Moon Shawl, I wanted to highlight another great yarn that would work for either pattern, but has no wool in it – and Colorscape was the perfect choice!
Red Heart Colorscape is 100% acrylic and has 12 great “painterly” colors. So whether you make the Tuscan Sun Wrap or Tuscan Moon Shawl (or both!) you’ve got two great yarns to choose from.
