Hand Dyed Patriotic Shawlette Pattern and Kit
I now have a hand dyed kit for this shawlette that works for either KNIT OR CROCHET! This was inspired by the knit pattern “Protest is Patriotic” by Craftivist Elizabeth Sovern. I had (and will now resume) selling kits for my modified version of the knit pattern (using beads). I had always wanted to do a crochet version because of course we should have both. Now that I am dyeing the yarn for it and no longer worry about yarn being discontinued, here we are! (NOTE: Supply chains have been crazy in 2020 so I added a 2-ply USA non-organic cotton version.)
I am excited to be able to offer USA organic cotton OR high twist merino/nylon. The kit includes the yarn, beads, beading wire and knit or crochet pattern. Please note which pattern you need.
If you only want the crochet pattern written by me, just add that to your cart and checkout. No need for payment.
The original knit pattern (which does not use beads) can be found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/protest-is-patriotic-shawl OR craftivist.net
Knit needle: US 4
Crochet Hook: F (3.75mm)
Kit includes fingering weight yarn - 100g of red, 100 g of white, and 25g of blue, ivory glass beads (greater than 50 - in case you drop a few), beading wire, and pattern. You will be able to do ONE shawlette in either craft. I show two in the photos so you can compare.
Please note the knit shawl shown above was done in my previous commercial cotton yarn. The crochet shawl was done in my new hand dyed organic cotton. See the kit photos for yarn colors.
