  • Asali Shawl Pattern

    $5.50

    A triangular Honeycomb slipstitch shawl with a wide ribbed border designed specifically for our new super soft and squishy Ombre Shaniko Merino Worsted 150g balls.

    What’s In a Name?

    Asali is “honey-like” or “sweet like honey” in Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Swahili. The design is inspired by my recent trip to Egypt. Beekeeping has been documented by Ancient Egyptians in the hieroglyphs. Aswan – the blue-green gradient is named after the beautiful desert/oasis city and Anubis the brown/black gradient is named after the Egyptian Jackal God.

    Worked from cast-on edge/corner out, increasing stitches along one edge. One color is used at a time with the pattern created in an easy to memorize slip-stitch. A loose rib border is worked in the final step. You will use all the yarn available to you, but your size may vary based on gauge. Shawl will grow substantially with blocking, so check gauge on blocked swatch.

  • Cyclone Cowl Pattern

    $5.50

    A one-ball project designed specifically for our oversized Shaniko Superwash Worsted gradient yarn. This is a fun project that wonderfully shows off all the lovely qualities of this yarn, the slow-changing gradient, the plumpness and softness of the yarn, the stitch definition as well as the extended yardage.

    The cowl is worked in an easy-to-manage repeating brioche stitch, with increases along one edge and tubular selvedges to mimic the wide wale brioche stitch. Once you’ve worked all but the last few feet of yarn, bind off, sew one short seam and you’ll have a reversible cowl that you’ll be looking for excuses to wear everywhere!

    The cowl is a high-collared neckerchief shape that can be styled a myriad of ways to suit your mood or the weather. The cowl begins narrower at the neck and widens in height and width to cover your shoulders. We bet you can’t make just one!

    Shown in Cloud and Chaparral.

  • Electric Boogie Cowl Pattern – Free!

    $0.00

    Warning! This cowl is highly addictive! Worked in two matching ombre colors, where the colors differ at one end of the ball and are the same at the far end. Begin with the ends of highest contrast and watch as the colors blend into one as you work through the yarn. Worked with a Provisional Cast on and Three Needle Bind off. Cowl is designed in our Worsted wool ombre but can easily be modified for most weights of yarn. You will want to use a gradient yarn for the true effect of the pattern.

  • Laure Jacket Pattern

    $7.50

    The sideways knit design fully embraces the long color transitions of our Ombré yarn. Shown here closed with a zipper, you could also simply leave the edge without a zipper and use a shawl pin for closure. I designed this while addictively binge watching “Spiral”, a gritty French crime show. The protagonist’s name is Laure, and this struck me as a garment she might wear, tough but not sacrificing any femininity.
