Spring Meadows Shawl: Color Inspiration

My Spring Meadows Shawl pattern has just released! This is the first time I've had a yarn dyer specifically asking me to design something with a specific yarn and colorway! This shawl was designed as a collaboration with The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For. You can find the shawl pattern for download on Ravelry, PatternVine, and LoveCrafts, and you can read more about the shawl design inspiration here. In this blog post, I'll share some other colors you may wish to use from The Fibre Studio, as well as some more affordable yarn options!



The colorway that I used is their brand new Spring Meadow colorway that they are launching for a North Carolina Fiber Festival.


Really, any of the Fibre Studio Fifty Shades of Gradient colorways would look beautiful with the Spring Meadows Shawl pattern, but here are a few of my personal favorites!


Eastwick


Catawba


Mountain Thistle



Maine Sail


Noveau Rainbow


Azure - from the deja vu collection


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 gradient fingering weight yarns that would also work well with the Spring Meadows Shawl!

All prices shown are USD and do not account for shipping costs.
