The Prairie School Shawl - FREE Pattern with yarn purchase!

The Prairie School Shawl
The Prairie School architectural style was a distinctly American style popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, with Frank Lloyd Wright as the most well-known name.  The movement encouraged handcrafting and craftsman guilds in favor of mass production and assembly line design.  The style also used a lot of horizontal lines to simulate the wide open spaces of the American prairie that simply didn't exist in older, urban European cities.

The Prairie School ideals come to life in the Prairie School Shawl.  Beauty and substance go hand-in-hand in this handsome shoulder wrap. This shawl features horizontal eyelet and garter ridge details in the body, and the fluttering ruffle along the bottom edge.  Like a Frank Lloyd Wright home, it's a stylish accessory that will feel homey and warm!

So what's the ideal yarn for this truly American shawl?  HiKoo's American B.R.A.N.D.  The "B.R.A.N.D." stands for Born Raised And Naturally Dyed all here in the USA!  American B.R.A.N.D. by HiKoo is an American-made fingering-weight yarn. It starts off with superwash Rambouillet wool raised from Montana to Texas. The wool is then spun in Pennsylvania where it is blended with soft and durable nylon. It is dyed in North Carolina using natural dyes from Botanical Colors which include nuts, roots, bugs, flowers, fruits, and trees.  The wool is then blended with soft and durable nylon. The result is a product that's proudly American … lovely and robust.

Perhaps you don't have the budget to spend two or three million dollars to purchase a Frank Lloyd Wright home?  Then you'll be glad to know that we have all HiKoo yarn, including American B.R.A.N.D., on sale for 20% off until the end of February.
