Spring Meadows Shawl: Color Inspiration

Updated: Oct 29, 2020

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!



Mountain Thistle

Maine Sail

Noveau Rainbow

Azure - from the deja vu collection
