Game of Thrones Inspired FiberWild! Exclusive Color

You have probably heard of the HBO series "Game of Thrones."  Ok, who hasn't heard of "Game of Thrones?"  It's all Vera and I talk about on Monday morning, and whether you are an obsessed fan or not you know that the show has lots of drama, medieval characters, awesome costumes - and dragons!

Snow Tree in Bearfoot
So when it was time to work with our friends at Mountain Colors Yarns to cook-up the next FiberWild! Exclusive Color, we couldn't help but suggest another "Thrones" inspired color.  Snow Tree is a subtle blend of blue, green and gray inspired by the sacred weirwood tree in the northern region of the show.  

Snow Tree is available in Mountain Colors Bearfoot, a soft blend of superwash wool, mohair and a little nylon, Winter Lace Jr., a half silk, half wool lace weight yarn, and Alpaca Blend, a medium weight blend of 50% superfine alpaca and 50% wool.  And all three are on sale at 20% off!

Enchanted Tree Shawl Pattern
Keeping up with the tree theme, I created the Enchanted Tree Shawl pattern to show-off the colors with a tree and leaf motif sprouting from the stockinette stitch body.  The crescent shape stays on your shoulders nicely in the drapey, wispy way that follows so many of the costumes on the show.  The shawl's size is approximately 62” wide and 22” deep, and will take two skeins of the Bearfoot yarn.  We do not recommend knitting the Enchanted Tree Shawl with Alpaca Blend, but you can knit a lighter, more delicate shawl with two skeins of Winter Lace Jr.  (Call the store for a few tips and tricks for using the pattern with Winter Lace Jr.!)

Don't have a king's ransom to spend on patterns?  No problem!  The Enchanted Tree Shawl pattern is FREE with the purchase of any quantity of Bearfoot in Snow Tree!

Still not enough Thrones for you?  Don't forget our first Thrones inspired FiberWild! Exclusive Color, Fire Dragon, and the Drogon tribute Dragon Wings Shawl.
