Our next KAL is inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit. Published in 1922, this story is a staple in children's nurseries to this day. The Velveteen Rabbit is about love and loyalty and the value of tradition and simplicity. A more serious story than modern children's books, the beauty of The Velveteen Rabbit is in how it takes "real" life and all of its pain and sadness and makes it both approachable and surmountable. You can enjoy an online version of the story, along with the original illustrations, here.
Designed by Janine le Cras, this crescent shaped* shawl is worked in fingering weight yarn and can be knit in any of our fingering weight bases. You can choose a regular colorway or one of our Gradiance colorways. *the shape is like The Little Prince
The pattern will be emailed to you in pieces. On the first day you'll receive the instructions for the first part of the pattern. In the following weeks you'll receive the rest of the pattern, bit by bit. But you won't see a finished picture of the shawl until the very end!
We'd love to have you join us on this knitting adventure!
Announcements and conversation will take place on the Ravelry group board so please join us there! The designer (Janine le Cras) and the dyers (Kelly Eells and Laura Lough) will be active on the Ravelry board and Facebook Group to answer questions about the pattern and cheer you on!
