There have been so many beautiful patterns being launched on Raverly as well as gorgeous fibers from Indy dyers. Today I’m sharing a few patterns with yarn suggestions that I hope will inspire you to pick up your needles and hooks!
The Tuscan Sunflower Shawl designed by Geoffrey Hunnicutt is a gorgeous tribute to lace and truly destined for an experienced knitter. Geoffrey has enhanced the lace patterns in this design by simply using two colors of light fingering weight yarn. I think this design would be paired nicely with Sundara Yarns Silky Merino fingering weight.
Get your hooks ready to hook it! The Wycheproof Shawl designed by Rebecca Velasquez is the perfect project for beginner crocheters. Using just 430 yards of light fingering weight yarn, this triangular shawl pattern would only require one skein of Saffron Dyeworks Mini Mica in Garden of Ireland!
Mudita designed by Kristen TenDyke of Caterpillar Knits is fresh, simple and hip. Kristen believes in using organic and natural fibers to create her designs and the perfect match for this project is Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Worsted Cotton.
The lacy curvature of Waldenwood designed by Judy Marples of Purl Bumps is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. This sweet and feminine little shawl uses just 355 yards of fingering weight yarn and would be perfect knitted in Olive You, a silk and cashmere 2 ply fingering weight by Sunshine Yarns.
Hope a few of my ideas have inspired you! Happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
