Love Yourself Shawl: Color Inspiration

Updated: Jan 11, 2021

My newest pattern release is the Love Yourself Shawl. This shawl was designed as a collaboration with Marian of Marianated Yarns. You can find the shawl pattern for download on Ravelry here, and you can read more about the shawl (and other locations to purchase the pattern) here! In this blog post, I'll share some other colors you may wish to use from Marianated Yarns, as well as some more affordable yarn options!



The colorway that I used is a gorgeous multi-pink color called Rose Quartz.


In my personal opinion, any of the Marianated Scrumptious HT colors would look beautiful with the Love Yourself Shawl pattern, but here are a few of my personal favorites! (It took everything in me to not pick all of her colors!)



Drizzly Day


Cosmic

Beach Glass

Tequila Sunrise

Greige

The Forest Through the Trees

Faerie Braids

Berry Frappe

Clouds in My Coffee

Ogre Swamp


Affordable Yarns List


Can't afford hand-dyed yarn? I completely understand! That is A-OK! Here I've selected a list of more affordable fingering weight yarns that would also work well with the Love Yourself Shawl! (Note: I am not affiliated with any of the links -- I am just providing this list for your reference. The images are the images from the links provided.) All prices shown are USD and do not account for shipping costs. When ordering your yarn, remember that many of these yarns sell in 50 gram balls rather than 100 gram skeins.


Knit Picks Stroll

75% Merino/25% Nylon, this yarn would cost up to $11 for the one skein version and $22 for the two skein version. (Some colors are on sale, so it could be cheaper!)


Knit Picks Gloss Fingering

A 75% Merino/25% Silk blend, this is the most expensive (and most luxurious) yarn on my "Affordable Yarns" list, but it is about half the price (not accounting for the price of shipping) of the yarn I used. A one-skein version of the shawl would cost between $10.50 and $15, and a two-skein version of the shawl would cost between $21 and $30.
