Patience Shawl: Color Inspiration

Updated: Jan 1




As you may or may not know, I just released my Guiding Principles Collection, which includes the gorgeously detailed Patience Shawl. This shawl was designed as a collaboration with Tiffany of Tippy Tree Yarns. In case you're interested in knitting this shawl design (you can find the pattern here!), I've selected a few Tippy Tree Yarns colorways that I would love to knit in the Patience Shawl pattern.


Of course, I ought to start with the yarn that I knit my Endurance Shawl with. I used the Sparkle Sock base (a beautiful merino/nylon/stellina combo) in the Branches colorway. This combination creates such a delicate, and "fancy" look.



All of Tiffany's colorways are stunning, so here I've selected a few that I think would best show off the incredible details of the Patience Shawl.


Color Inspiration


Pretty In Pink: A light, beautiful play with pinks and gold.


Purple Ghost: A beautiful, tonal pink colorway


Clock Strikes Midnight: A deep, beautiful charcoal gray tonal colorway.


Old Apple Orchard: A fun play with speckles on a cream base with a beautiful spring green color.


Windsor Castle: A gorgeous mixing of tans, grays, and browns for a beautiful neutral colorway.


Mountainside: A gorgeous mid-tone gray perfect for any project!


Dusky Beard Tongue: A beautiful pinky-purple tonal that will become your new neutral!


Rose Garden Beauty: An overall light-colored tone with beautiful pops of green, pink, and yellow.


Duchess: The most delightful, creamy swirl of pinks with black, green, and yellow speckles.


I completely understand that you may not be able to afford hand-dyed yarn, and that is OK. (I wouldn't be able to work with it if it weren't for collaborations!) Because of that, I've selected a list of more affordable sock weight yarns that would also work well in the Patience Shawl!
