Daft Days Shawl and Kits!

Update!, April 23, 2024: We finished one of our Daft Days Shawls! You'd have plenty of yarn to knit 22 stripes as we intended, but we decided to stop at 18 stripes before the border. The finished shawl has a wingspan of 70" and is 32" deep -- just right for doing a tuck and roll around your neck! And you'll have leftover Birdie which might be just the thing for a matching Hat for All Seasons or a Regimental Cowl. ***Posted April 4, 2024*** You know how much we love a good triangle shawl here at The Lamb & Kid — they're fun to knit and the shape suits all sorts of color play and stitch patterns. This week...

Welcome Shenanigan Stripes Shawl!

Our newest pattern, based on our Sampler Shawl, is a color-happy, scrap-friendly shawl that employs a randomized stripe sequence to add oodles of delight to a basic accessory. Follow our sequence as written, or grab your fingering weight and fluffy scraps and play!   We've done two versions...Sarah played with her Elmer and Birdie scraps pairing them together in a myriad of ways as she knit the shawl shown here on the right. We developed the shawl on the left for our pattern -- a stripe sequence and a set of colors in two of our favorite yarns you can follow if you want to make one just like it too. We love both -- and we are excited to...
