Zauber Perlen
We knit this shawl using one ring, which contains 7 mini balls, of Zauber Perlen. The shawl is called the Be Simple Variations and is free on Ravelry!
The latest yarn from Schoppel, the makers of Zauberball, is Zauber Perlen, which translates as Magic Pearls. Looking like a string of pearls, the mini balls of fingering weight yarn create a gradient.
Manos del Uruguay Cardo
Cardo, a beautiful new yarn from Manos del Uruguay, is 100% Corriedale, a traditional sheep raised in Uruguay for many years.

Cardo is a plied, bulky weight yarn perfect for so many projects. It's the cover yarn of the latest Vogue Knitting magazine. The Perpendicular Cowl takes just 4 skeins to make.

The colors used in the model are D2459 Cirrus, D2115 Sanguine, D21591 Peachblossom, and D2020 Spirulina.

Knit with 16" Size 10 1/2 circular needles, or size to obtain gauge.
