Alessia Shawl Yarn Kit (Shawls for Sharing)

Option: Amethsyt

Designed by Kristin Omdahl
Shawls for Sharing

This is a top down increasing triangle shawl with a beautiful ruffled edge. The centre gusset has a subtle yet meaningful message of Xs and Os to symbolize the love and intention we put into every stitch when handmaking a shawl for friends we know and friends we have yet to meet.

This is the first knit pattern released with Shawls for Sharing, a new initiative with Project Kristin Cares.  Each quarter Kristin Omdahldesigns and releases a dedicated shawl pattern, and 100% of the proceeds of the sale of the pattern during that quarter will be donated to the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

The pattern for this shawl is available now and can be found here: Alessia Triangular Knit Shawl.  It will also be available after November 1st on the I LIKE KNITTING website, and in the December issue of the magazine!

Dyed-to-Order:  Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 2 - 3 weeksfor us to dye and ship your yarn. In addition, while we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
