Trust Shawl: Color Inspiration

Updated: Jan 1, 2020

As you may or may not know, I just released my Guiding Principles Shawl Collection, which includes the cozy basically-a-shlanket Trust Shawl. This shawl was designed as a collaboration with Meghan of Native Fibers. In case you're interested in knitting this shawl design (you can find the pattern here!), I've selected a few Native Fiber yarn colorways that I would LOVE to see knit up as Trust Shawls!

Of course, I ought to start with the yarn that I knit my Trust Shawl with. I used her Arctic DK base (a cozy merino BFL) in the Cabernet colorway. I love this deep, cozy color for the Trust Shawl!

Color Inspiration

Climbing Ivy: A beautiful blend of browns, greens, and pinks that remind me of dusk.

Honey Crisp: A vibrant pink and green duo.

Pumpkin Swirl: The most luscious combination of oranges and a tint of brown.

Dark Truffle: A beautiful, deep tonal with a hint of mauve.

Huntsman on Wolverine DK: There's just something about this green with the tweed!

Graveyard on Wolverine DK: The perfect answer if you're looking for neutral, practical, and goes-with-everything, but still has a hint of something special and unique.

Extra-Luxury Color Inspiration - with some Added Mohair

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 DK weight yarns that would also work well in the Trust 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.)

To perform your own search for affordable DK weight yarns, here are a couple places to start your search:

Have you made a selection for your Patience Shawl color(s)? If so, what have you chosen? Meghan and I would love to hear about it in the comments below, on Instagram (be sure to tag @snickerdoodleknits and @nativefibers), and on Ravelry (share it in my group and/or link your yarn and pattern on your project page)!
