This week we are thrilled to reveal yet another wonderful collaboration. We have teamed up with Polish designer Hanna Maciejewska, who has turned two skeins of our DK yarn into a beautiful shawl design called 'Incentive'. 



Incentive is the perfect accessory for cold winter days: it's large enough to wrap around, keeping you warm and cozy and the crescent shape is easy to style and will stay put around your shoulders.  As you can see in the picture above, Hanna has used two different stitch patterns on the body and edging of the shawl, adding a pleasing 'visual' texture which is topped off beautifully with the picot edging.


The beautiful textual design of this shawl calls for a subtle semi-solid or tonal colourway (Hannah used the tonal colourway Storm). Below are some of my colourway picks:







Incentive is now available over on Ravelry.  You can see more of Hanna's designs here and check out her inspiring blog 'Life Is A Stitch'.



Thanks to Hanna, I will be giving away a pattern as well as two skeins of Skein DK to make the Incentive shawl (winner's choice of colour) to one lucky reader/podcast viewer!  All you have to do is tell us in the comments below which Skein colour you would choose to make this beautiful shawl.  Entries close on December 8th; the winner will be chosen using a random number generator and announced on the blog.  Entry is limited to one post per person.


Have a wonderful week!
