Last week, we released our colourways for the upcoming Shawl Society by Helen Stewart. These were so popular that they sold out very quickly. Because we don't want anyone to miss out, we will be adding dyed-to-order kits to the shop Friday.
If you've never heard of the Shawl Society, you're in for a real treat. The Shawl Society is a secret-pattern subscription club for knitters who love a bit of mystery, beautiful shawls, and knitting along with other daring, creative spirits. Over six months, you'll discover six exciting shawl patterns, how to master new stitches and learn fresh techniques.
As with all Curious Handmade patterns, the shawls will feature soft, romantic styles with a modern twist, designed to be both simple and interesting to knit. Lace and texture, meditative stitches and interesting techniques, and thoughtful line-by-line instructions mean that relative beginners and long-time knitters will both find plenty to love in these six shawl patterns.
Our Shawl Society kits contain three skeins of Merino Silk Sport in your choice of colourway. We have eleven softly speckled colours that have been handpicked especially for the KAL.
Our yarn is featured in the first secret-shawl pattern that will be released in May. Helen knit her sample using the colourway Coffee Grounds; however, any lightly speckled colourway would work beautifully.
Our Kits will be available for pre-order Friday 16th; they will ship in around 3-4 weeks. The Shawl Society signs up begin May 7th, and the first shawl pattern will be revealed Thursday May 20th. It's going to be a lot of fun, cant wait!
