Introducing Desert Nights Shawl Kit and Pattern

Autumn is officially here and the evenings are getting cooler. Why not throw a lovely shawl made with Lanas Puras Melosa over your shoulders!?? We are so pleased to announce the release of the lovely Desert Nights Shawl designed by Pam Covert. Pam is the talented designer who also designed the Llama Bag, an exclusive pattern for One Planet Yarn and Fiber, in Lanas Puras Melosa. This shawl has the beautiful wool to keep you warm but is surprisingly light. The pattern includes both knit and crochet versions using large sized needles and airy stitches to create a light and drapey fabric you’ll love to wear on a cool evening anywhere. Large stitches mean these shawls work up quickly, making them a great gift giving project! The stitches used are easily mastered by the beginning stitcher.

The first photograph shows the knit version of the shawl.

The second photograph shows how differently the pattern looks using the same lovely Lanas Puras Melosa colorways, but in a crochet version.

Here are a few shots of the two versions side-by-side. Both of them are really beautiful and make a perfect accessory for fall.

We are proud to release this pattern in a kit which comes complete with all 5 skeins necessary to make either a knit or crocheted shawl as shown along with the pattern download. The kit includes a discount on the Lanas Puras Melosa as well as a FREE pattern! The pattern download is also be available for sale.

Watch this site over the next few months for more fabulous patterns and kits in Lanas Puras Melosa, Lanas Puras Clarissa and Black Pearl cashmere yarns!
