Vaunt Shawl Yarn Packs

  • A black, yellow and red striped shawl.

Sarah Thornton’s Vaunt Shawl in the Winter 2020 issue of Knitty grabbed our attention right away: we love how she used her hand spun with a commercial yarn for a stunning striped effect.

We’ve put together yarn packs for this shawl with our 100% Shetland wool. We chose a strong neutral as the background and trellis edging and all our bright primary colors in the stripes.

Each yarn pack has three 50-gram skeins of the background color (choose from Bark or Bramble) and five 12.5-gram skeins of the stripe colors.

In addition to the free pattern from Knitty, you’ll need: US size 3 (3.25 mm) circular needle, 32-40″ (or size to get gauge given in pattern; two removable stitch markers; yarn needle. Blocking wires are optional but recommended.

Linglestown Shawl = Pantone’s Colors of the Year

  • A gray and yellow shawl.

One of our favorite color combinations, yellow and gray (or “grellow” as we like to say), happens to be Pantone’s Colors of the Year. We’ve used both here in our Linglestown Shawl (shown in our Fawn and Buttercup).

The asymmetrical shawl combines garter stitch, stripes, ribbing and the traditional Shetland lace pattern, Crown of Glory. It’s available on our website as a PDF pattern or a kit. The kit includes two skeins of Liverpool Fingering yarn and a printed copy of the pattern. You can choose from the color combinations we’ve put together or pick your own.

Our 100% Shetland yarns are in mini skeins! The same natural and clear primaries that you’ve loved in our 50 gram skeins are now available in 25-gram/90-yard skeins. They’re perfect for colorwork (think yoked sweaters, hats, mitts, stripes). We’re offering them in individual skeins and in sets of naturals and primaries.

All Liverpool Yarns are 100% Shetland wool, sourced in the UK and spun at a small mill in Pennsylvania. You can see the full range of yarns, colors, kits, patterns and swag on our website.
