Since Local Yarn Store Day is April 21, let’s celebrate our small business owners who specialize in yarn! Not only do they create havens of inspiration, friendship and learning, small businesses are so important for the fiber of our community (in more ways than one).
If you buy yarn for my pattern “Local Yarn Shawl” on April 21 from any of the participating LYSs, you will be given the pattern for free. Many local yarn stores are doing special yarns for this, or you may of course choose your own.
The shawl comes in two sizes. Here, it is shown in one 560-yard skein of Fifty Shades of Gradient by Fiber Studio (the small shawl) or you may use two skeins of fingering weight yarn with at least 360 yards each. The large shawl is shown here in Primrose Yarn Company Sophia (the peach and pink) and Anzula Cloud (the white and purple).
Please take the time to visit your local yarn store on April 21 and support them with some love and yarn purchases.
