Melanie Berg Eifelgold PDF
Inspired by a volcanic region, shades of molten gold and stone gray give Melanie Berg’s Eifelgold its name. In this design sections of garter stitch mix with a striking mosaic pattern that is much easier to knit than it appears, since only one color is used at a time. To knit this asymmetrical triangular shawl choose two luminous shades of a sport weight yarn.
