Intertwined Shawl Knitting Pattern: Yarn Recommendations

Loving the Intertwined Shawl knitting pattern but not sure what yarn to use? Continue reading for color recommendations using Six and Seven Fiber (the yarn that I used), affordable yarn suggestions, and a list of resources to search for other yarns that will work for the pattern!


A warm, textured design, the Intertwined Shawl is a simple but beautiful accessory perfect for cozying up on cold winter day.



Intertwined was designed for Six and Seven Fiber's new Rocky Mountain Targhee yarn base. It's a 100% non-superwash Targhee yarn that's entirely from the Rockies, including the sheep, mill, and dyeing! Rachel, the yarn dyer, asked me to create a shawl design using her Pinon and Sunshine colorways; and the Intertwined Shawl was born! The shawl will look great with any two contrasting solid, tonal, or lightly speckled yarns. (Personally, I'd love to see it worked with a tonal as the MC and a speckled yarn for the CC!)

Six and Seven Fiber's Colors


Six and Seven Fiber carries six regular colors on Rocky Mountain Targhee (and a special featured color with each new batch). Here I've put together a few combinations with the six regular colors, as well as a few combinations with Six and Seven Fiber's other worsted weight bases. And, if you'd like to use the same colors as the design sample, you can purchase the kit from Six and Seven Fiber!

Alternative Yarns List


Can't afford hand-dyed yarn? I completely understand! That is A-OK! Here I've selected a list of lower price point worsted weight yarns that should also work with this design! (Note: I am not affiliated with any of the links -- I am just providing this list for your reference. I have also not worked with any of the yarns. These suggestions are purely from some internet searching.)


I've provided a few bits of information on each yarn for your own comparison. All prices shown are USD and do not account for shipping costs. The list is ordered from least expensive to most expensive per gram. For the sake of comparison, I've written everything in terms of 100 grams. The yarns with yardages and fiber content most similar to the yarn that I used typically create the most similar fabrics to the original design.
