NEW! Joji Locatelli – All I Want shawl kit in Waltham Aran

All I Want is a gorgeous two colour shawl from Joji Locatelli’s new Favourite Things collection of grey-knit goodness.

This shawl is incredibly quick to knit and warm to wear. Its easy lace patterns grow organically without any complex stitches.

You can make a monochromatic version with 3 skeins of the same colour of Waltham Aran or play with color-blocking.

To make it easy I’ve created a kit listing for you to buy the yarn on the shop.

This kit contains 3 skeins of thick, juicy Waltham Aran for the shawl pictured in the sample – pattern sold separately through Joji:
1 x Peaky Blinder – charcoal
2 x Graveney – light grey

each skein 100g= 166 m • 182 y
