I’m excited to finally announce the upcoming release of Crafter Gamer Geek’s first self-striping shawl colorway, Founder of Shadows! This new colorway, inspired by the character Hyde from the mobile game Dislyte, is dyed on a fingering-weight base of 80% Superwash Merino wool & 20% nylon. Each skein is a whopping 650 yards!
Founder of Shadows features a palindromic color layout made up of five colors: three shades of purple, a vibrant aqua, and a golden bronze. In case five colors just isn’t enough for you, you’re in luck! A semisolid coordinate charcoal gray colorway named Tartarus will also be available. This coordinate will be offered in 200yd skeins.
The news doesn’t stop there! I’ve partnered with Melinda of rhyFlower Knits for this release and she has designed a fantastic new shawl pattern to showcase Founder of Shadows. Melinda’s pattern, Requiem of Stillness, is a top-down triangular shawl that features an easy-to-remember two-row brioche motif that allows you to go patternless before you know it! The pattern allows you to make use of the Tartarus coordinate to finish with a small lace border. If lace just isn’t your vibe, the pattern also includes the option to finish with a simple stretchy bind-off. (All sample shawl photos provided by rhyFlower Knits.)
Mark your calendars! Founder of Shadows, Tartarus, and Requiem of Stillness will all be releasing on Wednesday, May 10th. Melinda’s pattern will be available via her website, and will also be available on Ravelry. The new self-striping colorway and its semisolid coordinate will both be available exclusively in the Crafter Gamer Geek shop, and live events as inventory allows.
