We are proud to host Lorna Misers's first combination KAL/CAL with the help of the spectacular hand-dyers at Zen Yarn Garden.
|Crochet version in Blue Magenta|
Our MAL is two versions of a beautiful rectangular lace shawl - one knit and one crochet. Lorna's truly outdone herself with this design, as both the color and stitch pattern change as you work from the center out. The skill level you'll need to finish this project is INTERMEDIATE for knitters and crocheters alike.
Known for their rich and lustrous hand-dyed yarns, Zen Yarn Garden has created four custom colorways specifically for the Shaded Love Shawl and available only at FiberWild! The yarn is their beautiful Serenity Silk Single, an amazing blend of superwash merino wool, soft cashmere, and lux silk. The four amazing colorways are Blue Magenta, Charcoal Blues, Greenteak, and Mossy Cranberry. Each colorway has two hand-dyed complementary colors, with a third color (for the center) that was hand-dyed by mixing the two outer colors together. The result is a well-matched blending of colors. We packaged kits with just the right amount of yarn, so you will just need one Shaded Love Shawl Make Along Kit to complete either the knit or crochet shawl.

So how does the Make Along work? It's not a "mystery" Make Along, because we have proudly posted photos of the finished shawls. No surprises there! But similar to a mystery project, we are releasing the pattern in four weekly installments on October 8, 15, 22 and 29. This is to keep us all working along together. The pattern will be released electronically as a PDF, and your updated PDFs will be available via FiberWild.com and Ravelry on each installment release date. Just log in to either account, and the PDF will have been updated by 10am Central Time.
Connect with other Make Along participants on either the Knit or Crochet MAL Thread in the FiberWild! and Friends group on Ravelry where you can ask questions and get help. Questions are typically answered daily. The forums let knitters and crocheters of all skill levels participate and get the help they need from Lorna herself as well as from other Ravelers! Don't be shy … post pictures, comment on posts, tell jokes, and enjoy the camaraderie as we make this project together!
