The Shawl Society - Friday 9th April

April 07, 2021

We are excited to be collaborating once again with Helen Stewart as a part of her Shawl Society.

Returning for a fifth season, 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, mastering new stitches and trying out 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 yarn is featured in the first secret-shawl pattern that will be released in May. The yarn used for the first design is our Merino Silk Sport in the colourway Coffee Grounds. This week, we will be featuring eleven colourways (including Coffee Grounds) dyed especially for the KAL. As always, the design and theme of this year's Shawl Society is a secret; however, we can reveal that you will need three skeins of one colourway for the design.

 

Our yarns go live this Friday; sign-ups for the Shawl Society Season 5 will open soon, so keep an eye out for the Curious Handmade website for more details!
