The Inspiration + Design
I’ve been dyeing my own yarn now for over a year and it’s a shame I haven’t designed more projects with it! I’m putting a stop to that with this stunningly simple shawl pattern!
Spring and summer are what I like to call “breezy layer” seasons. When the wind kicks up by the shore or the air gets chilly after sundown I always like to have a light wrap or cardigan around to throw on over my tanks and tees. It’s been a while since I designed a shawl and I wanted something different from my usual triangle shawl (like the Wishing Well Wrap or Le Nuage Wrap) I designed last year. I decided on a simple rectangle that’s large enough to snuggle up in without too much extra fabric that would be hot and heavy.
Simple eyelet stitches made by skipping stitches and easier-than-you-think ribbing make this project easy enough for a beginner – even though the finished product looks super luxe and stylish. I love tossing this wrap on over a simple black V neck and Jeans (my top is the Grace Wrap Top & is handmade by my friend Raney at www.RaneMade.com – check out her gorgeous comfy clothes here!)
Once I decided on what I wanted to make with our yarn, I set out to choose a yarn base and colorway – fun!
I love our Crocheter’s DK base yarn – we always dye a lot of it for our monthly shop updates (get on our email list HERE to be notified of the next one!) and I originally hand selected it to be ideal for crocheting. So much of the hand dyed yarn community caters to knitters that I knew I had to carry a yarn just for crocheters!
Ever since I first dyed our Vanilla Bean colorway back in January, I knew I wanted to make something with it. It’s a soft vanilla color with tiny black speckles that are barely there. It’s the perfect amount of interest without being too busy! I paired it with our Ava solid pink color that’s the perfect dusty shade of blush.
I’m so thrilled with how this super soft yarn worked up and how the colors and drape all came together in the finished product.
