  • Summer Shawl KAL

    July 03, 2015 2 min read 0 Comments


    On August 1st we will be casting on our latest knitalong. The pattern which has been a closely guarded secret for the last few months has been especially designed for us by Clare Devine using Mabel & Ivy Coast. 


    Pwani is a celebration of the sea and the perfect relaxing summer knit. Easy mesh panels are framed by soothing garter stitch. Simple, familiar stitches are a joy to work, you never need to count to more than two and each section can be worked until your yarn runs out.  



    Easy to wear and incredibly versatile, this deep, wide crescent shape will slot right into your summer wardrobe. Mabel & Ivy Coast creates a fantastically light and airy fabric with the perfect balance of cool cotton and a touch of warmth; just what you need on a breezy summer evening.



    The dazzling array of colours available in the Mabel & Ivy Coast range mean there is a colour combination for everyone. Claire and I have put together some inspiring colour combinations which are available as a shawl kit, or you could let you imagination run wild.



    The Pwani Shawl Kits are available now to pre-order for delivery from Monday 13th July. Each kit contains a printed pattern and enough yarn to complete your shawl along with a sachet of Soak so you can block your shawl beautifully once it's finished.


    We will be gathering in the Tangled Yarn Group on Ravelry to chat and knit-along together, with the official start date beginning August 1st although we aren't too strict regarding this if you just can't wait and need to cast on a little earlier! This will be a month long KAL, so finishing on Monday 31st August. There are some KAL rules to follow to be eligible for a prize and you will find these in the Ravelry group.


    It would be great too for Clare and I to see everyone's progress so please do share on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #coastsummerkal


    Both the shawl pattern and yarn are available to purchase separately if you'd like to play around with your own colours.
