Hope Shawl: Color Inspiration

Updated: Jan 1, 2020




As you may or may not know, I just released my Guiding Principles Collection, which includes the gorgeous, drapey Hope Shawl. This shawl was designed as a collaboration with the sweet Rachel of Six & Seven Fiber in Colorado. In case you're interested in knitting this shawl design (you can find the pattern here!), I've selected a few Six & Seven Fiber yarns that would look UH-MAY-ZING knit into the Hope Shawl.


Of course, I ought to start with the yarn that I knit my Hope Shawl with. I used her Barley base (a squishy single-ply superwash merino) in the Morning Glory colorway. Stunning!!! (Since my wedding over 3 years, where my colors were green and purple, I've realized how much I love the purple-green combo!)




While I honestly think you could knit the Hope Shawl with *anything* in Rachel's shop, here are a few that especially stand out to me!


One-Color Ideas


Oxford: A stunning orange/red/brown/purple mixture that is overflowing with autumnal vibes



Blossom 006: A beautiful, calm mixture of green, purples, and white that eludes to springtime.


Bohemian Rhapsody: A bright, colorful combination of pinks, corals, and oranges with speckles of all colors!
