Switchback Shawl KIT / Hand Dyed Winter Speckled Rainbow MCN Fingering Weight Contrast Skein Knitting Pattern

$43.00

Sorry, this product is sold out!

The Switchback Shawl, designed by Bonnie Dean from Chief Left Hand Knits, is a beautiful shawl designed specifically for Phydeaux mini skeins!

Switchback uses one set of Winter Rainbow hand dyed mini skeins (six skeins, 70 yards each, total 420 yards) and one full skein in a contrast color.

The minis are just 70 (or so) yards per skein, hand dyed in speckly mystery rainbow colourways. Each mini skein is dyed in a custom speckled yellow, orange, red, violet, blue and green.  Expect a little charcoal or black in each, along with tiny flecks and bits of unexpected color, like the iridescence of Winter sunshine on ice.

The kit bundle ($80 + shipping):

  • One pack Winter Rainbow mini skeins
  • One full skein of a contrasting color (see options in the drop down menu)
  • Download code for the Switchback Shawl pattern (ships with the skeins)
  • One heavy duty vinyl pouch with velcro closure

OR order JUST the miini skeins and pattern ($43 + shipping):

  • One pack Winter Rainbow mini skeins
  • Download code for the Switchback Shawl pattern (ships with the skeins)

The photos show you the Switchback Shawl worked in one set of the speckled rainbow minis and one skein of Boudicca, both in Down fingering weight.  

You may order the kit using the available color combinations.  OR you may order the mini skeins and your own choice of contrasting color separately (the pattern download code will be included with standalone mini skein orders).

Your minis will be dyed using Phydeaux's super soft, Down luxury yarn, so very soft, with a breathe of a cashmere halo.

Down luxury base yarn 

▶ Four-ply fingering weight
▶ 70 yds each skein (64 m)
▶ 80% superwash merino wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. I take great care to dye yarn that is variegated throughout: no big pools or stripes of color. I also reskein all of my yarn after dyeing to ensure no tangles or knots.

Very soft and silky - perfect to wear next to your skin. Not itchy at all!

PREORDER:  kits will ship May 22 to June 9.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Bonnie Dean is the designer behind the Switchback Shawl, as well as many other beautiful and expertly designed knitting patterns at Chief Left Hand Knits.

Bonnie decided to pursue knitwear design as an extension of her competitive and professional sewing background, and her more recent love of hand knitting.

She pursued the TKGA Master Hand Knitting Program in order to gain credentials in offering knitting patterns on a local and international basis. Becoming a TKGA Master Knitter in April 2015 was her greatest personal challenge because she was not an expert knitter at the start, nor did she have a clue about designing hand knitted apparel or accessories. As she is extremely goal oriented, she never dreamed of quitting the program before completion, which has opened amazing doors for her.
