The Blue Lagoon Crochet Shawl

posted by: Amy Small in cowl & scarf patterns, maharani silk

Today we spotlight the Blue Lagoon Shawl by Lily Go, knit in our Maharani Silk yarn.  I came across this pattern at the industry tradeshow in June, when the shop owner of Fuzzy Goat, came into our booth wearing hers. I love the cobwebby delicate stitch pattern and knew we had to try one out for ourselves. So a few weeks ago, our resident crochet master, Tori Kendrew, whipped up this beauty. The pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn although we opted for our Maharani Silk, which is a sport weight. The final shawl is bigger and in my humble opinion, more stunning! I had so much fun discovering the stitch details as I photographed it and plan on stealing this for nights out on the town. You will need 3 skeins of our Maharani Silk to complete this shawl. We knit ours in colorway Bollywood Pink. All of the project details are also in Ravelry right here

Share your knits with #knitcollage

Seeing our yarns out in the wild is the most amazing thing as a business owner. Through instagram and our hashtag #knitcollage, I've discovered beautiful knits and projects that incorporate them. One of my favorite posts is the yarn just being knit with wherever you happen to be. I get a glimpse into how and what you're knitting and I am obsessed with it.  When I started this company, I never thought in a million years that the yarns would make it to all these farfetched places and that they would inspire people to create such beautiful things. Working alone on my business, it's easy to feel like I'm slaving away without much feedback but seeing all these gorgeous projects makes me feel connected to this awesome community of makers in a way that I never have before. I usually check this tag about 100 times a day! So, please tag us on Instagram at #knitcollage so we can see where our yarn takes you. I've added a new page to our site called SHARE YOUR KNITS, this will link up to our instagram page with all #knitcollage tags. Yup, pretty excited about that!  Below I've made a few collages of instagram posts featuring our yarns, insanely inspiring.

The Silkwing Scarf by Knit Culture

Knit Culture, a FABULOUS shop in Los Angeles, designed the prettiest scarf using our Maharani Silk yarn. The scarf pattern is called the Silkwing Scarf.  I love the designer Emma's description: "The finished scarf (once blocked) makes a lovely accent for special occasions. But it’s also summery and would look marvelous blowing in the wind on the beach, or in a top-down convertible." Doesn't that make you want to cast on right now?! Added bonus, this pattern is free and only uses 1 skein of yarn. Their sample is knit up in the color Keylime Pie. Pattern available right here
