We are excited to continue celebrating The Fibre Co.'s 2021 Star Designer Series with The Waiting for Rain Shawl by Sylvia McFadden in Canopy Fingering. This kit includes the yarn (5 hanks), a code for downloading the pattern and project bag. Both the Waiting for Rain Shawl & the Droplet Capelet will be on display in the shop May 3-31 if you'd like to see them in person before ordering.
About the Waiting for Rain Shawl:
The Waiting for Rain shawl is a lovely, beautiful garter and lace crescent shawl that uses an unusual short row lace technique. It fits perfectly over your shoulders and drapes in a way which is very pleasing to the eye. It’s worked top down with lacey increases in Canopy Fingering, and the design is reminiscent of the feeling right before it rains. An energy and a quietness. A loveliness.
Size: 203 cm (80 in) wingspan, 51 cm (20 in) at the deepest point
Inspired by the canopy layer of tropical rainforests, The Fibre Co.'s Canopy Fingering blends fine Merino wool, baby alpaca, and bamboo together to create fingering-weight yarn with a fantastic drape that is both soft and strong. A palette of bright, rich duotones makes for beautiful colorwork projects and shows off textured stitches well.
