A new shawl pattern and a fiber festival

I met some great designers at TNNA this year, and a lot of them wanted to work with Happy Fuzzy Yarn! This pattern is the result of the first collaboration.

The Bird’s Eye Shawl, designed by Diane Zangl exclusively for Happy Fuzzy Yarn, features neck shaping so it sits comfortably on your shoulders without slipping off or bunching up in back. And it’s reversible!

The pattern uses two skeins of Happy Fuzzy Yarn Merino Tencel Fingering (shown in Galactic Gumshoe) and a 36-inch US 8 / 5mm circular needle (circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches), and several stitch markers.

REQUIRED SKILLS: basic knitting skills (casting on, knit and purl stitch, basic increases and decreases, binding off), reading charts, lace knitting.

You can buy the pdf here. For those of you who prefer to buy on Ravelry, hang tight. I’ll be selling it there as well as soon as I resolve some technical issues (selling a pattern I didn’t design has some extra hoops to jump through).

Or if you’re going to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend, you can buy a print copy. Or a copy of any of my other patterns, and/or yarn and/or fiber. I’m not doing a lot of shows anymore (I’ve transitioned to more wholesale. You can find my yarn and fiber here), but I’m still doing this one because it’s a great show, and it’s a lot of fun. If you’re able to make it, you should! You won’t regret it!

Hope to see you there!
