This kit contains one cake of Bilum Muruk (50% silk 50% yak, 700m / 100g) and the Laburnum shawl pattern by Ágnes Kutas.
Laburnum is a top-down adjustable lace shawl with easy but fun to work increases on the body, forming branches, and a beautiful but not too challenging leaf pattern on the border. The pattern is suitable for lace knitters who already took their first steps and want to go further but also for more experienced knitters looking for a fun and relaxing knit. The pattern contains detailed charted and written instructions. You will find a link to a video tutorial that shows how to work each stitch that is used in the pattern and another one that helps you do the beginning of the shawl.
Bilum Muruk is a luxury lace yarn made of 50% silk and 50% yak hair. It is wonderfully soft with a charming shine. You will enjoy every single stitch with this yarn.

TESTERS WROTE ABOUT THIS SHAWL
This design was such a pleasure to knit, It flows along very logically. The unique design really captures the beauty and geometry of the Laburnum leaves and flowers which I found particularly fascinating. It makes a really nice sized shawl with that beautiful leafy lace as a wonderful finish!
This pattern would make a good next step for someone who wants to experiment with lace knitting. It looks complex but is very logical in its construction, and the charts are very clear. The body involves interesting patterning and the border is lovely and easier than it looks. I think it would look fabulous with the addition of beads on the ‘spines’ of the leaves in the border.
The written pattern is very easy to understand. The finished shawl is beautiful and I plan to make a second one.
Pattern was easy to follow and a great knit. Good shawl for someone beginning to knit leaf patterns. The body is mostly stockinette st and quite easy and the leaves are a bit more challenging but not too overwhelming. I usually use many markers for leaf pattern repeats but did not need for this pattern.
As usual, this was a well written, detailed pattern which incorporates how to do modifications. That’s something I greatly appreciate as I increase the size of nearly every shawl I knit.
Fun and interesting pattern that becomes quite rhythmic after a few repeats.
