Linnaea Shawl

Happy July! It's time for another year of Jyväskylä Knit Fest. For the first time, I'm not teaching but I do have a new design to celebrate:

Linnaea Shawl

This shawl is designed in collaboration with Aara Yarns. Aara is a new adventure for my friends Jonna and Laura. I'm so happy to be one of the very first ones to get to try out these yarns and I'm in love!


Linnaea shawl is a lovely half-pi shawl with texture interest and wonderful three colors. This easy construction creates a wonderfully wearable shawl that you can either wrap around your neck or just wear over the shoulders. There is no lace in this one, only a lot of easy brioche and some garter stitch! Find your perfect color trio and cast on!

The shawl is designed in collaboration with Aara Yarns.
