Knit a Sampler Shawl in The Lamb & Kid Monstro!

We're offering kits beginning Friday, March 1st -- or put together your own color combination here! You can also shop your favorite color combinations in our weekend-long dyed-to-order event, March 1st-3rd -- we're offering Monstro to dye for the first time in forever!

Eventually, we'll have one of these shawls in every yarn we offer -- a long term plan for sure. It's an easy pattern to use when you want to play with color and fabric -- and the resulting piece is cozy and quick to style. These shawls make great gifts too!

To knit one in our bulky-weight merino yarn as we've pictured here, first get your free Sampler Shawl pattern from The Lamb & Kid Designs on Ravelry, or on our website.

Needles: US 13 32" circular needles

Gauge: 10 stitches and15 rows = 4" in Stockinette stitch, blocked.

Finished Measurements: Approx. 60" wingspan x 25" deep.

Follow Two Color Version directions on the original pattern until 5 stripes are completed (3 in MC and 2 in CC).
