I’ve been sick this week and I spent my recovery time creating this fantabulous shawl for you that you can get as a kit right HERE.
If you’ve hung out with Darn Good Yarn for any amount of time, you know that I love easy projects that don’t require too much planning because Darn Good Yarn’s fabulous fibers and yarns speak for themselves. I made this super cute shawl with outrageously lush fringe and pulled it together as a kit for you. This would look cute worn as a typical shawl (around the shoulders) or with traditional back worn in front and then wrapped around your neck. You could also pin and tie it around leggings for a whimsical look perfect for an afternoon music festival in the park.
So, this super simple pattern looks like this:
Grab your size 19 circulars (my cord was about 2 feet)
Then loosely cast on 25 with your yak wool. For each row after, k1, ktf&b, then knit until you have two stitches left on your row, ktf&b, k1
Work both hanks of yak up until you have a small handful of the yarn left and bind off.
Weave in any ends.
Now, the fun part. Make some fringe from the suede and silk. The pictured shawl shows 3 feet lengths because I wanted it to have some cool drama but you should play around until you find what you love. This kit will come with all the yarn you need (2 hanks of black yak wool from Nepal, Reclaimed Suede Ribbon, and Nighttime Rainbow Recycled Silk Yarn)

Save 20% This week only-Stained Glass: Wool and Reclaimed Silk Yarn
Silk and wool married so perfectly together. This is yarn that you’ve always wanted. You’ve dreamed of this yarn. I know I have!
This creative yarn was made in a wonderful small family-owned co-op/mill where 70 women and 30 men work and get paid fair wages to sustain themselves and their families.
The yarn comes in 2 different plies and it makes the thickness a little different.
The 2 ply has 84 yards per skein and is a worsted weight and the 4 ply has 70 yards per skein and is a chunky weight. Each skein is 100g. Every skein is a unique collection of color!

OK this was so tough. The one terrible downside to these contests is choosing. I personally hate it because there are usually some good ones out there! This time it was really tough because I had over 300 entries… um holy smokes! And they were all super inventive. But alas, I had to take a big-girl-pill and pick one even though I felt like kicking and screaming.
So, below are the names of the winners of the silk sari ribbon color naming challenge!
Congrats and stay tuned for the next contest, you could be the next winner! But for today, these winners will get a free skein of the color they won for!
And for this week, these new colors will be on sale! So get ‘em while they’re hot!
